Slovenia to deploy up to 200 troops in Slovakia

Slovenia will deploy up to 200 troops to Slovakia as part NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence, Defence Minister Matej Tonin announced as he met his counterpart Jaroslav Nad.

Slovenia would like to “send a whole company, we don’t want to divide it into several parts”. Initial indications were that Slovenia could deploy up to 100 troops. “I’m confident that Slovenian soldiers will do their job well because they’re true professionals,” Tonin said as Nad hailed Slovenia’s intention to participate.
