During the exhibition, talks are planned with leading world arms producers, including with French partners, “with whom Russia is implementing a large number of mutually advantageous joint projects, both in the interests of the Russian armed forces and the armed forces of third countries,” the Rosoboronexport press office said.
The Russian arms seller intends to hold talks at the exhibition with delegations from South-East Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Latin America.
