Foreign Minister Svoboda to discuss Iraq, EU issues on Paris visit

The Czech Foreign Minister, Cyril Svoboda, is to discuss the situation in Iraq and European Union issues with his French counterpart in Paris on Thursday. Unlike France, the Czech Republic has said it will support a possible United States-led war against Iraq if the United Nations passes a resolution allowing for such an intervention. Czech anti-chemical units in the Persian Gulf have been reinforced for that purpose.
