System of training foreign military personnel must be perfected - Putin

Approaches to the training of foreign military personnel in Russia must be perfected, President Vladimir Putin said.

"I think a strategy of training foreign military personnel in Russia should be drawn up. We continue training foreign military personnel the old way, but the system needs to be perfected," Putin told the Military-Technical Cooperation Commission.

"A specialized branch should be set up in the military-technical cooperation system," he said. "Only high-skilled specialists, instructors and military interpreters must work with foreign personnel," Putin said.
