Soldiers from Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, France, Georgia, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Ukraine and the US were to leave Slovakia gradually, with the last to leave being representatives of the organising Multinational centre for Coordination of Logistics from the Prague and Czech army.
