In 2017, several contracts were signed for the supply of weapons and military equipment. The trend of cooperation is positive, the parties are constantly negotiating to supply Bahrain with a wide range of weapons and military equipment for all types of Armed Forces- said Goreslavsky, who heads the company's delegation at the international defense exhibition and conference BIDEC-2017, which will be held from 16 to October 18 in Manama (Bahrain).
During the BIDEC-2017, Rosoboronexport planned an extensive business program. Meetings are expected with representatives of the military-political leadership and business of Bahrain and other countries of the region and North Africa. Bahrain is showing interest in Russian air defense systems of various ranges and armored vehicles. A representative of Clarion Events, Cray le Roux, said earlier that Russia this year signed a contract with Bahrain for the supply of Igla man-portable air defense systems.
The agreement on military-technical cooperation between Russia and Bahrain was signed in 2015. As part of the document, Rosoboronexport already in 2016 made a number of deliveries of Russian military products to the armed forces of Bahrain, reports TASS.
