The survey further shows that 94.2 percent of the adult population agrees that it is good that the country has armed forces, which can take action when necessary.
"Armed forces are here to make people in Slovakia feel safe and help when and where necessary and required," said Defence Minister Ľubomír Galko with regard to results of the survey.
The armed forces are considered the most trusted institution in Slovakia in the long-term, the SITA newswire quoted the results. December survey shows that almost 80 percent of adult Slovaks trust the army.
