MOSCOW, May 23. /TASS/. Azerbaijan is interested in buying Russian-made farm machinery, Pyotr Fradkov, the chairman of the Russian-Azerbaijani Business Council and director general of the Russian Exports Center, told TASS on Monday.

"First of all, I would like to note projects in the area of railway car-building. In 2015, we considerably increased exports of Russian-made railway cars to Azerbaijan. Uralvagonzavod received financial and non-financial support from the Russian Exports Center," he said, adding that projects in the area of car-building and gas supplies. "We are now in positive dynamics from the point of view of increasing exports of Russian-made products to Azerbaijan," he noted.
