Countries of the Visegrad Four (V4) – the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia – need closer cooperation in common airspace protection, V4 members’ defence ministers agreed on Thursday.
airDuring a meeting in Tomasov in Western Slovakia, Slovak Defense Minister Martin Glvac reminded his counterparts that Slovakia and the Czech Republic have already begun to work on a common airspace protection project called Common Sky, that intercepts aircraft and accompanies them to the external frontiers of the common airspace across the Czecho-Slovak border.
According to Czech Defense Minister Martin Stropnicky, cooperation in air defense is crucial.
“The airforce is a kind of elite, a showcase of the armed forces, and the cooperation here is suggestive,” added Stropnicky.
The defence ministers also discussed the Battlegroup – a defense cooperation partnership for training, exercises and capability development – which the V4 aims to have in place by first half of 2016. Slovakia will be V4’s leader in the field of radiological, chemical and biological protection. Enditem
