Talks with Germany on military gear swap continue

By: P.T., STA

Defence Minister Matej Tonin acknowledged that talks with Germany for a swap under which it would send Yugoslav-era tanks to Ukraine in exchange for more modern German armoured vehicles have stalled, but he said negotiations were continuing.

“Slovenia has done its part. The equipment we intend to send to Ukraine is ready for transport. We’ve notified the Germans in writing what kind of equipment we want, now we’re waiting for feedback from the German side,” he said. Slovenia is interested only in “modern equipment which the arms can actually use in the next ten to fifteen years.”
