Defense Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic said on Thursday the Serbian military has to be the best in the region.
Speaking during a visit to a military high school training future non-coms, he said that he expects the cadets to “be the best in our military with the skills and knowledge you get, with the new equipment we are buying, and our military has to be unrivaled in our region”. “The important thing is that we should all fight for that every day,” a Defense Ministry press release quoted him as saying.
He said that the cadets “are the country’s elite and the future of the military”.
He said that the authorities will continue raising salaries in the military and buying new equipment.
