The final protocol was signed by the leaders of the commission’s national parts — Igor Demidenko, First Deputy Minister of the Belarusian State Authority for Military Industry, and Nenad Miloradovic, Assistant to the Serbian Defence Minister for Material Resources.
The Serbian delegation members familiarised themselves with production facilities and capabilities of 558 Aircraft Repair Plant JSC, with the progress in repair and modernisation of the MiG-29 aircraft owned by the Serbian Air Force, as well as with the potential of Belarusian defence companies.
