THE FIGHT against terrorism - protection against the effects of explosives, is the theme of a two-day NATO conference, which starts at the Slovak Defence Ministry on September 28.

The aim of the conference is to offer experts a forum for an exchange of experience in this area and create conditions for common advancement of the NATO countries in the fight against terrorism, news wire SITA wrote.
