BELGRADE - Serbian Defense Minister Nebojsa Rodic met on Thursday with the chief of the Croatian Armed Forces General Staff, Lieutenant General Drago Lovric, who is on a two-day visit to Belgrade. As the Ministry of Defense said in a release, officials agreed in the meeting that there is a keen interest in improving the bilateral military cooperation. 

Rodic thanked Croatia for offering assistance to Serbia along the path toward the EU, adding that Croatia's EU entry constitutes an encouragement for the entire region in terms of its European perspective.

 “The Serbian Ministry of Defense is interested in establishing cooperation in all areas of mutual interest and improving cooperation in the fields of military education and medicine, with careful consideration of a possibility of joint engagement in multinational forces, establishment of economic cooperation and joint entry into third markets,” Rodic said. Lieutenant General Lovric said that Croatia strongly supports Serbia's aspirations and voiced willingness of the Croatian side to exchange its EU integration-related experiences with the Serbian Armed Forces.

 “Plans for future cooperation need to be considered, with the aim of ensuring stability in the region and wider. By continually improving good neighborly cooperation and relations, the two countries' armies demonstrate readiness to secure peace in the region and their capability for carrying out military missions across the world,” Lovric said.
