Army reshape to last until 2015

Reform of the Slovak Army along Nato guidelines, making it smaller, more mobile and less reliant on heavy weaponry, will take until 2015 rather than 2010 as previously thought, said Defence Minister Jozef Stank yesterday. The Army is scheduled to become fully professional by 2006; Slovakia hopes to join the Nato alliance next year.
