Defence Minister confirms foreign mission priorities for next two years


Participation in NATO as well as joint foreign-missions in Afghanistan and Mali and the fight against Daesh will be priorities for the Czech military over the next two years, Defence Minister Martin Stropnický tweeted on Monday. All missions still have to be approved by Parliament; the Defence Ministry is counting on allocating around 2.3 billion crowns for the missions. The current mandate for foreign missions expires at the end of 2016.
