    ALABINO RANGE (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) — Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu expressed hope on Saturday that the Russia-Serbia military-technical cooperation will increase after the recent appointment of Aleksandar Vulin new Serbian Defense Minister.

    "First of all, I want to congratulate you on the appointment as the defense minister. I hope that our dynamics in military-technical cooperation will continue and increase. In recent years we have done and started a lot of things. This is about our military-technical cooperation, our assistance in terms of arms and military equipment supplies. This also includes military cooperation, holding joint exercises, exchange of delegations not only at the level of high command, but also at the middle and lower level," Shoigu said after a meeting with Vulin.
