The Serbian Armed Forces are made up of experienced professionals, patriots who carry out every task they are assigned conscientiously and responsibly, proving that they are our strong support in these challenging times for our country – Minister Gašić said.

According to him, we closely monitor the events taking place in the surrounding countries and around the world, we increase our capabilities and strive to keep pace with more modern armies, so that we can respond to all challenges, risks and threats.

– In the period ahead, the acquisition of modern weapons and military equipment will continue to be our top priority, but also the care for the wellbeing of every member of the Serbian Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defence, continuing a trend of improvement in their material status and position, so that those whose calling is to serve Serbia are financially secure – said Minister Gašić.

Minister Gašić told the citizens of our country that they should have full confidence in their armed forces, in their determination and ability to fulfil their constitutional and legal role and carry out every task assigned to them by the state leadership.
