LE BOURGET, October 27. /TASS/. Russia, Brazil and South Africa are considering a possibility of joint development of military purpose products, deputy director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Anatoly Punchuk said on Monday.
He is leader of the Russian delegation at Euronaval 2014 (International Naval Defence and Maritime Exhibition and Conference).
“In terms of BRICS [Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa] a series of major projects with India is being implemented now. South Africa shows more interest in cooperation with Russia in the joint development and production of military weaponry,” Punchuk said.
Earlier, Russia’s state corporation, Rosoboronexport, director-general Anatoly Isaikin told TASS that Russia, Brazil and South Africa were planning to hold talks within BRICS before the yearend.
According to earlier reports, Russia is planning to sign a contract on the Pantsir air defense missile and artillery systems before the end of the year. Russia proposes Brazil to improve technological cooperation on supplies of the Pantsir-S1 air defence and artillery systems, Punchuk said.
After the demonstration tests for the Brazilian delegation in September “active talks are continuing”, he said.
