The Slovenian Armed Forces or Slovenian Army are the armed forces of Slovenia. Since 2003, it is organized as a fully professional standing army. In April 2002 the government of the Republic of Slovenia decided to abolish the mandatory military service system as of June 2004 and to dismiss mandatory reserve forces in 2010.
The most important tasks of the Slovenian Armed Forces are to ensure the readiness to provide military defence of the county, to fulfil the obligations undertaken by the country within international organizations and treaties, and to participate in the protection, rescue and relief in the event of natural and other disasters.
