Greece’s foreign lenders have suggested that the debt-hit nation could reduce defense spending by abolishing its mandatory military service. Officials also recommend an increase in the use of e-procurements “for a further rationalization of expenditures.”

The proposal is included in a draft report by the European Commission on the progress of the Greek economy dated November 27, one day after the eurozone finance ministers’ summit in Brussels.

Sources at the Ministry of Defense, however, told Skai that “the military service is compulsory and will remain so.”
