American army removes Slovak support

The US defense department has withdrawn all aid from Slovakia, as well almost 50 other states. The move comes because those states have not signed bilateral agreements with the United States exempting Americans from the International Criminal Court.

This is a result of a US law forbidding military aid to countries that had not signed such agreements by July 1. The law provides exemptions to 27 countries, including 18 members of NATO.

The support lost includes military training in the USA and more than $1 million (€870,000) of military aid annually.
