At the LAAD 2015 International Defense and Security Exhibition to be held from April 14 to 17 in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) Rosoboronexport, part of the Rostec State Corporation, will discuss prospects for expanding military-technical cooperation with Brazil and other Latin American countries.
In the course of LAAD 2015 Rosoboronexport’s specialists will hold talks with high ranking delegations from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Chile, Ecuador, China and South Africa.
Military-technical cooperation with Brazil has been carried out since 1994, when a contract for the delivery of several batches of Igla type MANPADS was signed. In 2008, an intergovernmental agreement on military-technical cooperation was concluded. Rosoboronexport’s contract to supply a batch of Mi-35M military transport helicopters was a real breakthrough in the bilateral relationship. The contract provides also that a service center for repair of these helicopters will be established in Brazil.
