MOSCOW, June 17 (Itar-Tass) - Rosoboronexport and the U.S. Army Ground Forces have signed a contract on supplies of Russia’s Mi helicopters to Afghanistan, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation reported on its website on Monday.
“Within the joint efforts to counter terrorism Rosoboronexport and the U.S. Army Ground Forces signed a contract on supplies of Russian Mi helicopters to Afghanistan in Paris on June 16, 2013,” the report says.
It notes that the parties expressed hope for expanding partnership in the military-technical field.
In 2010 Russia and NATO reached agreement on the Alliance’s purchase of Russian Mi helicopters, which had been designed for operations in Afghanistan. Presently, the supplies have been completed. Last year Russia opened a centre to train Afghan technicians to service helicopters.
In April 2013 the Russia-NATO Council launched the second stage of the helicopter package for Afghanistan.
