MOSCOW, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has all the chances to expand the supplies of military products to Latin American countries, taking into account the growing interest of the potential partners, first of all, in Russia’s aircraft equipment, Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Alexander Fomin told ITAR-TASS after the FIDAE 2014 International Air and Space Fair that ended on Chile on Sunday.

Ten companies, including the arms exporter Rosoboronexport, presented Russia’s military equipment at the event. Fomin headed the Russian delegation.

“There were very many contacts (at the FIDAE 2014) and meetings with our partners, such as Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela. We believe that our products can be in demand also in other countries of the region, especially all the types and kinds of helicopter equipment: the Mil (Mi) and Kamov (Ka) brands, both military-transport and combat and multipurpose types,” Fomin said.

He also noted an interest of the partners in this region in Russian planes. “The fighters of the MiG and Sukhoi brands, Yakovlev Yak-130 planes are also very popular in this region,” he said.

Fomin said the event that ended on Sunday was a very important one for Russia, as the country has participated in the forum since 1994. According to the FSMTC director, at FIDAE 2014 Russia did not conclude agreements.
