The Senate has approved a government proposal for the Czech Republic to send another 13 soldiers and a CASA plane to the U.N. mission in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula where they should serve from November until the end of 2014. The proposal comes in response to a request from the mission’s command which asked Prague for a CASA plane as well as technical personnel. The extension of Czech participation, which now comprises three military officers, requires the consent of the Senate, the upper house of parliament, in view of the fact that the lower house is dissolved.
