MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. Iraq hopes to continue defence contracts with Russia, despite Washington’s objections, Russian presidential aide for military-technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin said on Thursday.
"All the contracts with Iraq are being fulfilled. The Iraqis are very interested in this, and at the same time our so-called American friends are opposed to such cooperation. They [Iraqis] insist on continuing the contracts," the Russian official said.
The presidential aide also said that Baghdad was particularly interested in helicopters.
In 2012, the two countries signed a $4.2 billion contract on the delivery of Russian military products to Iraq.
