The agreement defines the goals, areas and forms of bilateral collaboration in defense, including the exchange of information on military, political and international security issues, confidence-building measures and arms control, the document says.

Other areas include the sharing of experience and expertise in international peacekeeping operations, as well as joint exercises.

The agreement creates a legal framework for the organization of visits by the countries’ warships and warplanes on a reciprocal basis, joint personnel training programs, and participation in sports and cultural activities, the document says.

It also stresses that the agreement does not conflict with any of Russia’s current laws and will not require the provision of any additional funding from the federal budget.
