Serbian and Greece chiefs-of-staff meet

BELGRADE - Chief-of-staff of the Serbian Armed Forces General Ljubisa Dikovic and Greek Army's Chief-of-staff General Mikhail Kostarakos met on Thursday to discuss the two countries' military cooperation.

  Dikovic told reporters ahead of the talks with his Greek colleague that the meeting would cover the security situation in the region and modes of future military and defence cooperation, primarily through merging the capacities for training and further education. The Serbian Army and the Armed Forces of Greece maintain excellent cooperation, primarily in terms of staff training as 80 Serbian officers graduated in Greece, Dikovic said.

 “We will offer our capacities, such as the ABHO Training Centre, certain repair capacities in which Greece expressed interest and we will also continue with education and staff training, both in Greece and in Serbia,” Dikovic said. General Kostarakos underscored that Greece is Serbia's permanent partner and strongly supports Serbia's efforts aimed at accession to the EU and various international organisations, and added that his country will continue Serbia's EU path.
