Defense Minister Panos Kammenos (photo) said on Tuesday on Mega TV that the government plans to allow some army conscripts to stay on with the armed forces for another two years after the end of their mandatory military service and be paid for their work.

Kammenos also reiterated his intention to re-establish the army engineering corps, also known as the Joint Group of Reconstruction Machinery (MOMA).

Kammenos said that conscripts who are civil engineers or who can operate machinery could stay on and work at MOMA.
