Two in three Belgians favour compulsory military or civilian serviceTuesday, 13 March 2018 11:42
Military service was abolished in Belgium in 1992, but the Minister for National Defence, Steven Vandeput (N-VA), does not himself favour the restoration of conscription. He commented, when interviewed on VTM on Monday evening, “We now have a professional army which is organised, so as to contribute to international missions. We therefore now need highly specialised individuals who undergo long periods of training, longer than compulsory military service would allow.”
