Russia and Belarus signed an agreement Tuesday to establish a common air defense system, local media reported.

The document was signed following talks in the Kremlin between Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and his Belarussian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko.

The creation of the joint air defense system should go together with the development of military relations between Moscow and Minsk, Lukashenko was quoted by Itar-Tass as saying.

Moscow will also consider granting an additional loan of several billion rubles to Minsk and boost energy cooperation with the close ally, said Russian presidential aide Sergei Prikhodko.
