Iraq asks to speed up the supply of Russian weapons

12
Supplies of Russian military products to Iraq are on schedule, but Iraqis would like to speed them up, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.


“Supplies of military products are not delayed, they are carried out in full compliance with existing contracts. Another thing is that our Iraqi colleagues, given the urgency of the problem of terrorism, would like to speed up the receipt of certain types of these products, ”he said at a press conference following talks with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari.

“They made a request, and we will try to fulfill this request,” the Russian minister stressed.

In turn, H. Zibari said that his country seriously needed to receive Russian weapons.

“Among these weapons, I can name helicopters and other military equipment,” he said.

“I want to immediately note that there is an agreement between us on the supply of other types of weapons, which can be used not to counter terrorism, but to strengthen our country's defense capability,” said the Iraqi minister.

“On the first question, Russia promised to study our applications as soon as possible and transfer the necessary weapons so that we could send them immediately to the Iraqi special services, which are fighting the terrorist groups,” the minister added.

        No problems.
        Then the Iraqis would have to pay more than specified in the contract.
        Al Maliki (Prime Minister of Iraq-approx. Apollon) read what you wrote above. laughing

    they’re fighting ISIS, and now it’s necessary to become a weapon. I don’t know if there is no money, but they can give an oil field in exchange for weapons.

      Sagat, hi! Oil is in the hands of Lukoil, so you can’t give it for a long time given.

    And where is there NO Iraq? What is he a puppet of the USA? What is it all ruined? And what remains is the United States. How many yelling it was when the bloody dictator Hussein was deprived of power.

    Iraq IS, NO Dictator Hussein.

    The puppet would have to buy weapons from its overlord - the United States, not Russia $ 3 billion. The puppet would have to issue a concession for the development of its oil fields to its overlord - the US companies "Exxon Mobil", "Royal Dutch Shell", "Chevron Corporation", not the Russian Lukoil. And how many yelling was that the Americans only invaded Iraq for oil.

    And now they are blowing up in Iraq not according to politics, but according to religious dogmas. Sunni Iraqis blow up Shiite Iraqis and vice versa. Orthodox knives of the Middle Ages were replaced with dynamite, that's all.

    This is purely out of curiosity: what does Iraq buy from us in general?
    Quote from the article: “Among these weapons I can name helicopters and other military equipment.” It sounds somehow blurry.

      The contract for the supply of military equipment to Iraq for four billion dollars was signed in October 2012. It was about the supply of 30 attack helicopters Mi-28N and 42 anti-aircraft missile-cannon systems “Pantsir-C1”. The contract was signed during the visit of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to Moscow. At the same time, the signing of an additional agreement was not ruled out, according to which Iraq would receive MiG-29M / M2 fighters and heavy armored combat vehicles.
