KUALA-LUMPUR (Malaysia), April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia makes largest military product supplies to the countries in the Asia-Pacific region, toughest competition fight is being waged for this market, Nikolay Dimidyuk, the director on special commissions of Rosoboronexport, the only Russian state-run mediator for export and import of the whole scope of military and dual-purpose end products, technologies and services, said in an exclusive interview with ITAR-TASS on Monday.
“As for co-operation with the Asia-Pacific region states Russia makes the largest weapons supplies to it traditionally. The strongest competition fight is being waged for this market,” Dimidyuk said. He noted that geopolitical ambitions of many regional players have grown sharply and these ambitions should be substantiated with real strength.
“Meanwhile, the number of threats coming from separatist, terrorist groupings has also increased, fight with piracy is an acute issue,” he said, adding that today the Asia-Pacific states need modern produce and technologies for defence and security more badly than ever before. “And therefore quite massive financial resources are being allocated for these purposes and the largest world arms makers are actually fighting for them,” Dimidyuk said.
