NATO to employ around 75 Slovaks

BY 2008, around 75 Slovaks will be employed in NATO structures, Milan Cerovský, the chief of general staff of the Slovak armed forces told journalists in Bratislava on May 20.

When Slovakia becomes one of seven new NATO members next year, it should be granted 15 positions for senior officers and nine for non-commissioned officers, he said.

At present, around three times that number are in training for NATO positions, Cerovský informed.

He said Slovaks will work in all structures of the alliance: in the NATO military committee, international military staff, European headquarters SHAPE, and regional commands.

Slovakia is expected to be under the northern wing of the Supreme Allied Command in Europe.
