Burma’s Ministry of Defense has announced that it has agreed with Belarus to form a committee to oversee technical cooperation on military matters.
Commander-in-Chief Snr-Gen Min Aung Hlaing, who heads the Burmese delegation to the former Soviet state, was cited saying that he had held talks with his Belarusian counterpart, Deputy Defense Minister Lt-Gen Yuri Zhadobin, on 4 November.
The two senior generals reportedly discussed an increase in cooperation and “friendship” between both countries’ armed forces. The respective ambassadors should also take steps to increase bilateral ties, the statement said, adding that, as military technical cooperation increases, both nations should increase cooperation in combatting terrorism, as well as improving food security.
The issues of drugs and education were also tabled, the announcement said.
