The commission will meet in the Belarusian capital Minsk on October 9-10 to consider proposals on the states’ closer interaction in this sphere, focusing on defense items’ standardisation.
“Much attention will be given to the expansion of the legal framework for military-technical cooperation. In particular, the sides will discuss the preparation of an agreement on defense industry products’ standardisation,” the spokesman said.
Lavrenyuk added that the commission members would also discuss the issue of creating a unified cataloguing system for materiel items of the two states’ armed forces.
The intergovernmental commission meeting will be chaired by first deputy head of the Belarusian State Military Industrial Committee Igor Bykov and first deputy head of Russia’s Federal Service for Military Technical Cooperation Andrei Boitsov.
