Slovakia has joined NATO's initiative to expand multinational cooperation in the specification, procurement and warehousing of precision-guided airborne munitions to cover all kinds of airborne ammunition, news agency TASR has learned from Defense Ministry spokesperson Martina Kovaľ Kakaščíková.

Defense Minister Jaroslav Nad, along with his counterparts from the other NATO countries concerned, confirmed this by signing an appendix to the memorandum of understanding (MoU) to the 'Air to Ground Precision Guided Munitions' project.

The minister noted that Slovakia might procure, for example, munitions for its F-16 fighter jets via this project in the future.

The project involving cooperation between NATO countries in the area of Air to Ground Precision Guided Munitions was initiated by Denmark in 2014. Slovakia joined it in 2019, and a total of 14 countries are now engaged in it.
