Slovakia needs new intelligence centre

The Defence Ministry has suggested creating a new intelligence centre in Slovakia to respond to the war on terrorism. The new "command centre" would have representatives from various departments and work around the clock.

The ministry is preparing to bring its key strategy documents up to date. Defence headquarters representative General Jozef Blizman said that there would be a strengthening of existing military units, rather than a creation of new ones.

All the changes will have to be approved by parliament.
