The Serbian military is planning to organize its first bilateral exercises with the armed forces of Belarus and China, Belgrade daily Politika said on Thursday.
The daily said that the Army of Serbia (VS) will hold a joint exercise named Joint Strike 2020 with Belarus forces in Serbia in September. Soldiers from the two armies have taken part in joint exercises with Russian forces but have never organized war games on their own.
It added that the first Serbian-Chinese exercise will be organized this year for special forces from the two countries. The Serbian Defense Ministry said in October last year that Minister Aleksandar Vulin and Chinese Central Military Commission Vice-Chairman General Jang Youxi announced the bilateral exercise during their meeting in Beijing.
