    BELGRADE (Sputnik) — Russia has received a list of the weapons required by the Serbian Army, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Tuesday.

    "We confirm the information by the Serbian Defense Ministry that the list of Serbian Army's needs has been prepared, and it will be carefully examined and considered," Rogozin told journalists following talks with Serbia's First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic.

    According to Rogozin, considering the economic capabilities of both countries, it should be possible to fulfill the list.

    Answering questions about the conditions for future agreements, Rogozin noted that "military cooperation issues do not call for chatter."

    According to the official, by the end of February, Russia and Serbia will form a high level commission on military cooperation, which is expect to commence its work by spring.

    Ivica Dacic, for his part, said that military cooperation with Russia would enable Belgrade to ensure its national security in a scenario where other countries become militarized.

    Earlier in the day, Rogozin said Russia was ready to supply any weapons that are approved for export to Serbia.

    On January 11-12, Rogozin took part in a meeting of the Serbia-Russia Intergovernmental Committee for Trade, Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation.
