Russia is holding talks with Brazil on the transfer of air defense technologies, the head of Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport’s delegation to the weapons exhibition in Lima said Thursday.
“We signed a memorandum on technical cooperation with the [Brazilian] corporation Odebrecht Defesa e Tecnologia (ODT). We are currently conducting negotiations on several projects that involve technology transfers, including in air defense,” Sergei Ladygin said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
The talks on the supply of Russian air defense systems to Brazil started in 2012, but the two countries have not yet signed a contract. Ladygin did not specify when the deal is expected to be finalized.
