The Serbian military has sent a new medical corps contingent to the UN mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA).
Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin handed a Serbian flag to contingent commander Colonel Igor Andic at a ceremony in Belgrade. The contingent is made up of 72 officers and enlisted personnel, including two staff officers and two military observers.
The MINUSCA mission was set up under UN Security Council resolution 2149 on April 10, 2014. The Army of Serbia (VS) has been engaged in the mission since Septembar 20, 2014 when four officers were deployed with a military field hospital with a staff of 68 deployed since Decembar 11, 2014.
