The TASR newswire quoted the Slovak defence Minister Martin Glváč as saying that the armed forces and armies of individual NATO countries had the opportunity to cooperate. He added that the exercise – and the Lešť facility – also proved “that we are able to sell it [Lešť and the Slovak army's potential] to other countries”.
