Special defense: Eritrea interested in ships, helicopters and small arms of Russian production

Moscow, Oct 23 16:00 - (Nova Agency)- Eritrea is interested in ships equipped with missile launchers, helicopters and small arms of Russian production. 

This was stated by the deputy director of the Russian Federal Service for technical-military cooperation Anatolj Punchuk at the "Sputnik" news agency on the sidelines of the work on the Russia-Africa forum underway in Sochi.

"Eritrea actively expresses its interest in resuming full cooperation in the defense sector with Russia. 

As the country has reached a peace agreement with Ethiopia (and after international sanctions on Eritrea have been revoked) is interested in the purchase of weapons: ships, helicopters and small arms, "said Punchuk. 

Several Russian delegations and Eritrea are conducting reciprocal visits to hold talks that should lead to the formulation of a proposal for the purchase of Russian military equipment.
