Bratislava hosts NATO conference

THE FIGHT against terrorism and protection against the effects of explosives was the theme of a two-day NATO conference held at the Slovak Defence Ministry on September 28.

The aim of the conference was to offer experts a forum to exchange experiences and create conditions for common advancement of NATO countries in the fight against terrorism, the news wire SITA reported.

Presentations by Slovak army units, the Interior Ministry, and international participants followed September 29.

Equipment designed to discard military explosives was showcased September 30 in the Military Technical and Testing Institute at Záhorie.

In July, the Slovak Republic took over a leading role in NATO in the area of disposal of ammunition and explosives.

The conference took place under the auspices of the Slovak deputy defence minister, and was primarily organised by the Joint Operations Centre of the Slovak Army's General Staff.
