ABU DHABI, February 20. /TASS/. Moscow is holding negotiations with a number of Middle Eastern countries about selling them the renowned Russian tank, Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Alexey Frolkin told TASS.
"We are discussing the matter with a number of states in the Middle East. However, it is too early to talk about the actual results," said Frolkin at the International Defense Exhibition and Conference IDEX-2017 in Abu Dhabi.
Earlier, Uralvagonzavod’s General Director Oleg Sienko said that the T-90 MS had some excellent opportunities on the Middle Eastern arms market. According to him, the armored vehicle had been successfully tested in Kuwait and had performed well in "dusty conditions".
Frolkin also said that Middle Eastern countries rank among the top three buyers of Russian arms and military equipment.
"The level of military-technical cooperation between Russia and the Middle East has remained high throughout history. Virtually every year the region occupies slots as a top-three importer of Russian military products," Frolkin stated.
He added that the customers were interested in almost the entire product range available for export. "The items highest in demand are air defense equipment, armored vehicles, aircraft and highly reliable Russian small arms," the deputy director said.
