KUBINKA /Moscow region/, June 17 /TASS/. Russia’s arms trading firm Rosoboronexport is negotiating military-technological cooperation with delegations of over 20 countries attending the Army-2015 International Military-Technological Forum, Rosoboronexport’s representative told journalists on Wednesday.
"We are holding negotiations with over 20 countries, including Uruguay, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Belarus, Thailand, Malaysia and several African states," Sergey Goreslavsky, Rosoboronexport’s deputy director general, said.
"Today, we have met the defense minister of Mali," he said.
According to Goreslavsky, Rosoboronexport’s participation in the Army-2015 forum has met all expectations.
"Our partners want to see our vehicles and other military hardware not only in a static position but also in movement, especially the combat and ride characteristics," Goreslavsky explained.
"It is very important for our partners to talk to the operators of these vehicles. If this army show gains a permanent status, its significance in the market of military-technological cooperation will keep growing," Rosoboronexport’s deputy director-general said.
Foreign delegations, according to Goreslavsky, are particularly interested in novelties. "That is why we have put on view the Verba man-portable air defense system; the Typhoons, the Ka-52 and Mi-8AMTSh helicopters," he said.
Goreslavsky added that Rosoboronexport was also marketing Russian helicopters in Argentina, which uses them in its Antarctic exploration programmes.
