Serbian DefMin says army won’t stop training

March 25, 2020

Serbian Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin said on Wednesday that the military will not stop training during the state of emergency which includes its engagement to help fight the coronavirus pandemic.

A ministry press release quoted Vulin as saying that the Army of Serbia (VS) must not loose its capabilities because of the new mission it got under the state of emergency. “The new mission includes security at 17 migrant centers and almost all the most important medical facilities, control of quarantines for people infected with the coronavirus and helping the Internal Affairs Ministry to establish control over border crossings,” he said after touring the Nikinci Arms and Military Equipment Testing Center.

Vulin was on a visit to Special Brigade troops doing live fire training with remote controlled weapons platforms. “All VS troops are under obligation to be ready to use new weapons,” he said.
