Czechs ratify defence treaty with US that makes it easier to deploy US troops in Czech territory

Featured in:



Prague: The Czech Republic on Wednesday completed the ratification of a defence treaty with the United States that deepens military cooperation and makes it easier to deploy US troops in Czech territory. Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala’s signature was the final step in the ratification process of the Defence Cooperation Agreement, which had been endorsed by both houses of Parliament in July and by President Petr Pavel on August 1.

The document sets a legal framework for possible deployment of US troops in the country at a time of Russian aggression against Ukraine.
Czech Defence Minister Jana Cernochova signed the treaty together with US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin in Washington, DC on May 23.

The US has similar agreements with 24 other NATO members, including Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Romania and Bulgaria that form the eastern flank of the alliance.
Any deployment of US forces would still need approval by the Czech government and Parliament.
