Iraqi PM to head delegation to Prague

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki will head a Czech delegation to Prague on Thursday. His meeting with Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas is expected to focus on security matters, business ties and the debated sale of Czech L-159 fighter jets to the Iraqi military. The Iraqi ministers of defense, foreign affairs culture and trade will be holding separate talks with their Czech counterparts. An unnamed diplomatic source told the CTK news agency on Tuesday that the Czech Republic had invested a great deal into the reconstruction process in Iraq and logically wanted to tap the existing business potential.
