Slovakia’s military presence in NATO to be upgraded

SLOVAKIA will have two more military representatives in NATO and EU offices as of December, according to the proposal for upgrading Slovak military representation in the military structures of NATO and EUFOR (European Union Forces), TASR reported.

"At present the Slovak representation is made of 70 members of the Armed Forces, while as of December 16, 2013 the number of the Armed Forces members is expected to increase to 72," TASR quoted from the proposal, which is now up for interdepartmental review.

This enables the Defence Ministry to respond to changes in the structure of NATO, especially in NATO command, within which Slovak soldiers operate.

The operational costs of the Slovak military representation in NATO and EU structures represent approximately €8.8 million for this year. Members of the Armed Forces operate in different structures of NATO and the EU in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland.
