PRAGUE (Sputnik) — The precise conditions for Slovak servicemen deployment will be determined after negotiations with France, according to the statement. The Republic is expected to send maximum five experts for six months.
"At the request of the French side, we will send our highly specialized military experts [to Mali]. In particular, it will be a mentoring team focused on consulting and training," Defense Minister Martin Glvac said as quoted in the statement.
