Serbian Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin was sworn in on Friday with reserve officer cadets and enlisted personnel at an Army of Serbia (VS) barracks in the town of Valjevo.

Vulin completed a training course for army reservists who had not done any prior military service and are over the age of 30. The Defence Ministry said earlier in March that some 600 men would undergo 15-day basic training courses.

Vulin volunteered for the basic training course despite the fact that he said earlier that he was declared unfit to serve because of bad eyesight which made him ineligible for the reserve forces.

“My great disappointment was when the commission declared me unfit to serve in the military. I had bad eyesight then… I did not serve and I envy you on that,” Vulin told a group of soldiers in July 2017.

Friday’s ceremony was attended by several top-ranking military officers and defence ministry officials.
