“It’s too early to comment particular steps in this issue,” press departments of both Ministries said, as quoted by Sme.
Head of the European and Northern-Atlantic Relations, Robert Ondrejcsák, said that strategic changes and Russian assertiveness force allies to react and focus on the security of NATO members, pointing to the fact that already in September at the Wales summit, the decision was made to increase NATO presence in central Europe.
However, so far only Poland, Baltic countries, Bulgaria and Romania have shown willingness to host bases. Hungary has not given official statement and the Czech Republic is sending ambiguous signals. Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico de facto ruled out NATO presence on country’s territory, according to Ondrejcsák.
