By 2017 Slovakia is to contribute a further €7.36 million towards the construction of the new NATO headquarters in Belgium, reads a proposal submitted for a government session. The funding for this project will come from the Foreign Ministry's budget as part of contributions to international organisations.

From the overall scheduled costs of €10.75 million, Slovakia has so far covered €3.39 million, the TASR newswire quoted the proposal on Monday, September 3. In addition, the Slovak Representation to NATO will also require extra financial support in connection with this process. The current NATO headquarters were built in 1967 for the original 15 member states. The organisation has grown to 28 members since then, however. Slovakia committed itself during its accession process to contributing towards the construction of the new headquarters.
