Serbia may receive six Russian MiG-29 fighter jets in March of 2017, the country's Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said Thursday.

BELGRADE (Sputnik) – He also said the agreement on the delivery of MiG-29 jets could be signed in Moscow on December 21 at a meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

"We expect them to be here already in March," Vucic said, as quoted by the Tanjug news agency.

In November, Media reported that Moscow had expressed readiness to deliver six MiG-29 fighter aircraft to Serbia if Belgrade covered jet fighters' repair costs, which amounted to some $50 million.

The question of the delivery of military equipment was reportedly discussed behind closed doors during the 15th intergovernmental committee meeting on the trade-economic and technical-scientific cooperation in the Russian city of Suzdal.
