GORKI, November 12 (Itar-Tass) — Russia and India are in talks on concluding a contract for building three more frigates, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting of the Cabinet on Monday.
“It is still possible to see a contract for an extra three ships,” Rogozin said. At this point there is a contract for supplying six frigates for the Indian Navy.
“A total of nine ships may be built for the Indian naval forces,” he said. He explained that the contracts for the three extra ships are in the process of negotiations.
Rogozin said the Indian side was quite pleased with the quality of that ship, “which is quite promising and armed with the jointly produced Brahmos missile, so the talks are in progress.”
Also, Rogozin told the prime minister that in Kaliningrad several such ships were being built for the Russian Navy, too.
“We build six ships for ourselves, of the same class and of the same project,” Rogozin said.
For his part Medvedev said that “despite certain problems in relations with various countries contracts continue to be implemented.”
He recalled that on November 9 another, fifth frigate was handed over to India.
