YUGOSLAV ARMY TO UPGRADE EQUIPMENT

BELGRADE, April 17, 2000 (Reuters)


The Yugoslav army will modernize its forces, including surveillance and jamming equipment, the daily Politika on Sunday quoted the army chief of staff as saying. "We will have special units, modern anti-aircraft defense systems and modern systems for electronic surveillance and jamming...as good as those of the armies of neighboring countries," Lieutenant-General Nebojsa Pavkovic said.

But he added that the upgrading of the Yugoslav Army would depend on the financial capabilities of Yugoslavia, whose already sluggish economy was devastated by last year's NATO air strikes.

The report did not specify what type of equipment the army would receive or where it would come from. Pavkovic said the army was not afraid of political attacks either from within Serbia, or from Montenegro.
