The session focused on the development prospects of industrial cooperation between the defense enterprises of CIS countries.
The head of state noted that members of the Commonwealth are interested in maintaining and — in promising directions — in increasing cooperation in the military and technological sphere. The President placed special emphasis on several fundamental tasks linked with this sphere. These tasks include the need to carry out an inventory of the whole system of cooperation in light of the set priorities that are significant in the long-term and that promote, first and foremost, Russia’s needs as stated in the Russian army’s weapons programme until 2015, developing the legal basis for military and technological cooperation, and implementing promising joint projects and programmes.
Proposals to improve the system of servicing the military technology that has already been delivered were also examined.
