ABU DHABI, February 27. /TASS/. Foreign Ministry of the United Arab Emirates has refuted claims by Ukrainian officials on alleged plans of the Emirates' government to export armaments to Ukraine.
An agreement on cooperation in defense technologies the UAE and Ukraine signed recently does not stipulate any contracts for deliveries of weaponry to the Ukrainian side, Faraj Faris al-Mazrouei said on Friday.
He said the agreements was only an element of a future system of cooperation between the two countries in the field of defense technologies.
First deputy chief of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council on Friday said Kiev had concluded contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars both on exports and imports of weapons at the IDEX-2015 exhibition this week in Abu Dhabi. The official said the majority contracts have been reached with US companies.
Asked if the Ukrainian troops will have new lethal weapons at their disposal, Gladovsky replied: "We are in contact with the whole world. We do get lethal weapons."
Earlier this week, Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko announced concluding contracts on arms supply to Ukraine at the IDEX-2015 arms exhibition in the United Arab Emirates. "During the IDEX-2015 arms exhibition Ukraine has concluded some 20 contracts on arms supplies," he said. According to the president, European, American and Middle Eastern companies will supply defensive weapons to Ukraine.
