MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Russia is supplying to Iraq flight radio-technical support equipment for an aerodrome of the country’s Air Force, a source in the military-technical cooperation sphere told TASS on Friday.
"The supply of this equipment for the Iraqi Air Force is currently underway. The contract provides for equipping an aerodrome in Iraq with flight radio-technical support equipment," the source said.
