This stems from the memorandum of understanding signed by Slovak Defence Minister Martin Glváč in Norfolk, Virginia.
“Also regarding the changed security situation, we and our Polish partner opened the discussion on this topic in NATO and we succeeded to push it through,” Glváč said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “This project will contribute to standardising the documents and counter-intelligence activities of the Alliance’s members.”
Except for Slovakia and Poland, also Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Romania, Croatia, and Slovenia want to participate. It is planned that Great Britain, the US, France, and other NATO countries will join next year, as reported by TASR.
“The idea of creating such an institution is well-founded, well-timed and far-sighted,” Glváč said, as quoted by TASR. “We are ready to take responsibility for creating adequate conditions for educational and training activities.”
The centre should also help face hybrid threats and improve intelligence.
