Plans drawn for reduced army service.

(Category: news )

THE DEFENCE Ministry has concluded on a proposal to reduce military service, as part of its plans to restructure the National Guard.

It will soon be submitted to the Cabinet for final decision to be reached on the matter.

According to Defence Minister Costas Papacostas yesterday, restructuring the NG and reducing military service go hand in hand.

The reduction from 25 to 19 months, he added, would happen gradually because it must be consistent with the NG restructuring.
