Belarus ready to build enterprises in Uzbekistan to upgrade military hardware

TASHKENT, 13 September (BelTA) – Belarus is ready to build factories in Uzbekistan to upgrade military hardware. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement during negotiations with Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev on 13 September, BelTA has learned

Alexander Lukashenko said: “Today we’ve agreed that in addition to repairing and upgrading your hardware, flying machines, armored vehicles we can set up the relevant enterprises here and modernize military aircraft, armored personnel carriers, and combat tanks. There is a lot of military hardware of this kind in this region.”

Alexander Lukashenko noted: “If you are interested in defense companies, they are open for you. If you need complicated command and control complexes, we make our own. Our army uses them. We can make some for you. If necessary, we can make more sophisticated rocket systems for you.”

Alexander Lukashenko stressed that Belarus has nothing to hide from Uzbekistan as far as security is concerned. “The president understands in what world we live today and sets security and defense goals. If you are interested in our military schools and state security agencies, you are welcome to see them. We will hide no secrets from you,” he said.
