MOSCOW, August 21 /TASS/. The Russian State Corporation MiG does not have a contract for delivery of MiG-29 fighter aircraft to Egypt, the company’s press secretary, Anastasiya Kravchenko, told TASS on Friday.
"Rumours about our promising contracts are exaggerated and are nothing but speculations," Kravchenko said commenting media reports that the MiG company was going to supply aircraft to Egypt.
Last year, the Russian State Corporation MiG said it expected to sign a contract for the delivery of MiG-35 fighter aircraft to Egypt. Early this year, Egypt concluded a contract with France for the delivery of 24 Dassault Rafale fighter aircraft having become the first foreign country to order this type of planes. In addition to that, US President Barrack Obama decided to resume military supplies to Egypt, including 12 F-16 aircraft, in spring this year.
The MiG corporation also said it never supplied and is not planning to supply MiG-31 interceptor aircraft to Syria, the company’s general director said.
"We have not delivered this aircraft to Syria and are not going to supply them there," Sergey Korotkov told reporters.
