Belarusian defense companies took part in the 2018 Defense Services Asia Exhibition and Conference (DSA) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. “The negotiations held during the exhibition showed that Southeast Asian countries are interested in developing military technical cooperation with Belarus. Several meetings were held to evaluate the current state and outline promising avenues of military technical cooperation, discuss the formation and development of a legal framework for this cooperation,” the press service noted.

According to the State Military Industrial Committee, the participation of Belarusian organizations in DSA 2018 became an important stage in military technical cooperation of Belarus with Malaysia and other countries of the Asia-Pacific region.
