MOSCOW, May 23 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and Serbia already this year may sign agreements on military and military-technical cooperation, RF Defence Minister General Sergei Shoigu said at a meeting with his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic held within the framework of an international conference on European security.
“I am glad that you have found an opportunity to discuss current issues of European security. We have long common history, we have suffered much. We would like to discuss the timeframe of the preparation of agreements on military and military-technical cooperation, there are two of them,” Shoigu told his Serbian colleague. “I hope this year we will be able to sign these agreements.”
Vucic for his part thanked the Russian minister for a good meeting, “for finding the time to meet the Serbian delegation.” “Serbia is interested in the further development of relations with the Russian Federation. We are ready to talk on different issues, including the agreements on military and military-technical cooperation,” said the Serbian minister.
