NATO’s Military Committee, the alliance's most senior military body, is scheduled to hold a conference from September 17 to 19 in the town of Vysoké Tatry, announced the Defence Ministry spokesman Milan Vanga to the TASR newswire on September 13.
Chiefs of staffs of the alliance's 28 member countries, headed by the committee's chairman, Admiral Giampaola di Paola, will discuss issues surrounding NATO transformation and the future of operations conducted under the alliance's command.
The event is being hosted by the Slovak Armed Forces in conjunction with the Ministry of Defence. More than 450 participants will converge on the alpine town. The NATO Military Committee holds travelling sessions in rotation once a year in a member country.
Portugal preceded Slovakia in hosting the event last year and Spain will be the host in 2011.
