Long-term defence strategy expects serious threats to Czech allies in coming decades

14-06-2015

According to a defence strategy to be approved by the government on Monday the Czech Republic and its EU and NATO allies will face serious long-term threats in the coming decades. The document, which was rubberstamped by the State Security Council two weeks ago, sets out the direction of the Czech Army between now and the year 2030. Its authors expect increasingly diversified distribution of political power and economic potential in the world to lead to instability resulting in the threat of direct military threats to the Czech Republic’s allies. The security experts also warn against the use of media for information war purposes, hybrid war and the rapid spread of epidemics.
