MOSCOW, October 29 (Itar-Tass) - The Defence Ministries of Russia and Belarus are developing a programme for the improvement of the facilities of the military infrastructure, Russian Defence Minister General of Army Sergei Shoigu said after a meeting of the joint collegium of the Defence Ministries of the countries here on Tuesday.
“We have summarized the results of work for the development of a new programme of the Union State (Russia, Belarus) to improve the facilities of the military infrastructure for the joint use in order to provide for the regional grouping of troops,” he said. “In 2014 we will put it up for approval by the Council of Ministers of the Union State,” he noted.
The participants in the meeting “considered and approved some progress in fulfilling the plan of joint events of the defence ministries for 2013-2015,” the minister said. “Within next two years the defence ministries will focus on the improvement of the legal base of bilateral cooperation, the planning of the use of the regional armed group, development of joint systems, primarily control systems, intelligence, air defence, communications and radioelectronic warfare,” Shoigu said.
“I am sure that all agreements will be fulfilled,” he added.
For his part, Belarusian Defence Minister Lieutenant General Yuri Zhadobin noted that Belarusian and Russian military “should conduct more than 150 joint events this year.” “The plan permits developing successfully our cooperation in security and military-technical cooperation,” he said. “Russia is the main strategic partner for Belarus,” Zhadobin added. “We value this and will develop joint activity in the interests of the defence of our countries in the future,” he said.
