Slavic Brotherhood-2016 joint anti-terror drills

Serbian, Russian and Belarusian troops are taking part in the joint drills.

Troops from Russia, Serbia and Belarus are taking part in the international anti-terror drills, dubbed 'Slavic Brotherhood-2016'.

The drills are held on November 2-15 near Belgrade, Serbia. Around 200 Russian and 50 Belarusian servicemen are involved. The Serbian side is represented by 450 troops.

Serbia's Special Brigade Commander Brigadier General Zoran Velickovic said: "Today we see that troops belonging to three countries, who speak different languages and wear different uniforms, can successfully carry out joint counter-terrorist operations. Such international military cooperation is necessary for strengthening security in our country and in the rest of the world."

The first "Slavic Brotherhood" drills were held last year at the Raevsky training range near Novorossiysk, Russia. Belarus is set to host next year's drills.
