The Czech Republic would not be able to furnish the troops and soldiers expected to support allies in the case of an emergency, according to a February evaluation by the alliance’s Defense Policy and Planning Committee, the ČTK agency reported Wednesday. A shortage of trained soldiers and equipment would cause the shortfall, the report said. Poland, alone among Central and East European countries, was praised for living up to its commitments. The report did however praise the Czech government for the pledge to raise defence spending to 1.4 percent of GDP.
