White Paper on Defence of the Slovak Republic - 2013


Biela kniha o obrane Slovenskej republikyThe Slovak Government approved the White Paper on Defence of the Slovak Republic. The document contains a summary of the analysis of the current situation of defence and defines the basic politico-strategic framework of a long-lasting development of the defence potential of the state with the emphasis put on the armed forces. The strategic aspect, the principal aim of the defence policy of the SR and the transformation aim of the armed forces remain unchanged. The techniques in order to achieve these aims will be enhanced.

The strategy is divided into two phases. In the first phase i.e. by the end of the year 2015, the emphasis is laid on the stabilization of the situation preserving the current spectrum of the capabilities. In the second phase at the beginning of the year 2016, a more dynamic development based on a progressive modification of the main types of the weaponry and techniques are expected.  The proposed solutions comply with the economic reality. Through a consistent implementation of the solutions, the negative trends will be precluded and the development of the armed forces initiated. Ultimately, the White Paper on Defence creates conditions for a gradual strengthening of the defence capability of Slovakia, enhancing our input to the collective defence and carrying out other international commitments in the area of defence.
