The strategy sets out the objectives, stages and mechanisms for strengthening the capabilities of the national defense system.
The aim is to ensure the defense of the state border, the development of airspace control and protection capacity, the improvement of the military training system and the improvement of the national emergency management system.
Among the main actions envisaged by the National Defense Strategy are: providing the armed forces with modern technique and equipment, reviewing the responsibilities of the force structures, harmonizing the legal provisions that regulate the national defense system with the European norms.
