The Serbian Defense Ministry said on Wednesday that the army engineers corps has received new equipment thanks to investments and a donation from China.

A press release said that the new equipment allows the army engineers to deploy immediately whenever they are needed to help the population. It said that the 40 pieces of equipment donated by China include self-propelled heavy machinery, transporters, ambulances and fire-fighting vehicles, adding that “the equipment has already proved to be of exceptional quality and reliable”.  

The Serbian authorities have been under fire over the past few days over reports that they contracted the purchase of anti-aircraft missile systems from China.
