“We conduct negotiations with India under the aegis of Rosoboronexport (Russian arms exporter) on signing another development contract,” Klementyev said.
Earlier, the contract on the fighter’s front-end engineering design was successfully fulfilled.
Klementyev refused to comment on progress of negotiations.Media reported in early 2014 that the Indian Air Force command criticised the joint project within the FGFA (Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft) program. In particular, Russia was accused of non-fulfilment of its promises. The Russian side said it hadn't received official claims from the Indian partners, adding that the work was going on schedule.
