Slovakia invested billions in anti-terror

THE TERRORIST attacks on the US on September 11, 2001 changed Slovakia as well.

Security measures have been tightened at Slovak airports in the five years since 9/11, as well as at some public buildings.

The Slovak police and armed forces have also changed their training regimen to guard against the possible terrorist attacks. The fight against terrorism has also spawned many laws and strategic documents, the Sme daily wrote.

According to former Interior Minister Vladimír Palko, Slovakia has invested several billion Slovak crowns since 2001 in anti-terror measures.
