TANJUG_maliBRUSSELS – A Serbian-Russian joint military exercise would send a wrong signal under the current circumstances, as Brussels expects Belgrade to act in line with its EU commitments and its accession process, European Commission spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said Tuesday.

According to the news portal EurActiv, the Russian press reports indicate that Belgrade and Moscow will conduct a joint military exercise named Slavonic Brotherhood later this year in Russia.

“Under the current circumstances, such a joint military exercise would send the wrong signal. We expect Serbia to act in line with its EU commitments and its accession process,” the portal quotes Kocijancic as saying.

The Belarusian troops will also take part in the exercise, the reports say.
