Russia ready to expand cooperation with Turkey for aircraft deliveries — Rosoboronexport

Russia is ready to expand cooperation with Turkey for the delivery of aircraft and helicopters, Head of the Rosoboronexport state arms seller’s delegation Denis Gizunov told TASS at the IDEF’21 international defense industry show in Istanbul on Wednesday.

“We are holding certain consultations on their TF-X [Turkish Fighter-Experimental] program [the program of creating the Turkish latest fifth-generation fighter] to render assistance to the Turkish side. Moreover, we are ready for a broader dialogue,” the Rosoboronexport official said.


Spokesperson for Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation Valeria Reshetnikova said in March this year that Russia was ready to hold negotiations with Turkey on the potential delivery of Su-35 and Su-57 fighter aircraft, if it was asked to do so.
