Belgrade daily Politika said on Tuesday that the Defense Ministry refused to comment reports that the Serbian military was buying a Chinese anti-aircraft system.

“Serbia has resolved the issue of long-range anti-aircraft defense by buying the Chinese FK-3 system and the Defense Ministry did not want to comment the purchase of the modern Chinese weapon nor did it deny the reports which it would have if they were incorrect,” the daily said.

According to the specialized Balkanska Bezbednosna Mreza (www.balkansec.net not to be confused with Balkan Security Network) portal, the state-owned arms trade company Jugoimport-SDPR’s annual report for last year says that one of the signed contracts was for the purchase of the chinese anti-aircraft system. The Serbian-language portal said that the purchase was a sign of deepening Belgrade-Beijing relations and added that the sale would take the Chinese military industry into a new market. Serbia is also the first European country to acquire Chinese-made combat drones.
