NATO to add two headquarters in Central and East Europe

NATO Defence Ministers agreed at a meeting on Thursday to set up two more headquarters in Hungary and Slovakia to ensure the fast deploying of NATO forces.

During a defense ministers’ meeting on Thursday, the NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance has finalized plans for a response force of up to 40,000, twice the current size, and new NATO headquarters offices in Hungary and Slovakia.

The decisions came as concerns over Russia’s recent military actions in Syria are growing.
