MOSCOW, May 31 (Itar-Tass) - Russia will supply at least ten MiG-29 jet fighters to Syria under the old contract, a source in the Russian defence complex told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“This contract was concluded long ago,” he said in his comments on recent reports in the media.
Russia does not plan to sign new deals, this concerns only the renewal of old agreements.
Some news agencies reported with reference to MiG corporation director general Sergei Korotkov, who said Russia could supply at least MiG-29 fighter jets to Syria.
At the moment the talks on the contract’s details are underway in Moscow, he said.
