Serbia to send troops in Cyprus peacekeeping mission

Serbian Army (VS) Infantry Squad will take part in a UN peacekeeping mission in Cyprus.

VS Chief of General Staff General Miloje Miletić and his associates saw off from the Nis military airport Friday morning VS members to Cyprus.

“This is the first independent VS squad that will perform tasks in the zone of a UN peacekeeping force, with their own armament and gear,” said Miletić, adding that the unit would join the Hungarian-Slovak contingent in Larnaca.

The VS chief of General Staff said that the participation of the VS unit in the peacekeeping mission showed that Serbia was an active factor for the preservation of stability and security and that it was recognized as a serious partner at the international level.
