"We have signed the memorandum of understanding on the joint production of remote weapon system to be used by Anoa armored vehicles of PT Pindad," Purnomo said.

According to him, Indonesia has been buying such weapons from Belarus but with the cooperation, the two countries would jointly produce them.

"Thus, the added value for us is that we can open job opportunities and joint investment," the defense minister noted.

Besides the joint production of the remote weapon control system, the cooperation in defense industry between the two countries will continue to be stepped up to produce tanks transporting vehicles.

Purnomo noted that Belarus has a long tradition in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and always has been in the centre of attention for foreign researches, universities and companies.

He said the country was one of the most technologically advanced republics of the former Soviet Union whose technology was used to design products for both civil and military applications.
