Topic: Czech Senate adopts draft to extend military mission in Iraq


PRAGUE, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- The Czech Senate approved a government draft
Wednesday to extend the country's military mission in Iraq until 2006.
The draft was approved by 49 in favor, none against and 12 abstentions
in the 81-seat Senate as 20 senators were absent from the vote.
Under the draft, the country's military mission is to stay in Iraq until
the end of the next year.
The draft still requires passage in the lower chamber of the Czech
legislature.
There are 102 Czech military police stationed in the Shaibah base
training Iraqi police officers. It also has three doctors and three nurses
serving in a British military hospital in Iraq now.
