The Turkish army continues to contribute to securing the FIFA World Cup activities in Qatar through its units specialized in combating chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear attacks.
The presence of the Turkish army units in Qatar comes at the request of the latter from friendly and allied countries to contribute to securing the World Cup, which started on Sunday.
Turkish army units are active within the joint task force that was formed in Qatar to secure the championship and also includes the United States, Britain, Italy, France and Pakistan.
The Turkish parliament had earlier approved a memorandum to send army forces to Qatar to secure the World Cup.
The unit for combating chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear attacks of the Turkish army is stationed at a military base in Doha and continues its duties throughout the entire day.
The aforementioned Turkish unit is scheduled to continue its duties in Qatar until the end of the tournament on December 18.
