Belarusian Defence Minister Yury Zhadobin said after the meeting that among all other countries Russia and Belarus demonstrated the greatest progress in the issues of cooperation in joint air defence.

Taking into account the high level of interaction between the countries' armed forces and existence of the regional military group, these words can be followed by significant steps, in particular, deployment of a Russian airbase in Belarus.

Joint military exercises with practice Military Cooperation 2013 at Ashuluk shooting range in Russia were named as an example of joint events. The exercises will train cooperation and formation of the common information space, improvement of the management system and maintenance of combat operations in repelling air attacks.
