The Minister pointed out that these vehicles would significantly strengthen our units and help them remain one the main pillars of defence and security of our country.

We will invest in vehicles such as “Lazar”, “Miloš” and “Little Miloš”, and this year we also expect the arrival of new “Noras” – Stefanović said, adding that he was glad that domestic companies such as “Jugoimport SDPR”, were doing their best to produce vehicles that were on a par with the world’s best vehicles.

They deserve it because they are doing an important and responsible job and they are fighting day and night to protect their country and ensure its stability - Minister Stefanović emphasized.
