Yesterday, Russian leader Vladimir Putin stressed that Moscow will develop military technology cooperation with the BRICS countries and Vietnam, reported Voice of Russia (VOR).

Russia concludes contracts for the supply of armaments and military hardware only with legitimate authorities and exclusively to ensure the defense capability of sovereign countries, President Putin said at the session of the Commission for Military Technology Cooperation With Foreign Countries on October 17th.

He was summing up the preliminary results of the military technology cooperation between Russia and its partners for 2012.

The Russian head of state also said that while signing contracts Russia comprehensively assesses the situation in this or that part of the world.

According to VOR, by October of 2012 Russia has supplied armaments and military hardware to its clients abroad to the tune of more than 10 billion dollars out of the planned 13 odd billions. The current volume of export may surpass last year’s figures, Vladimir Putin said.

Vladimir Putin stressed that Moscow will develop military technology cooperation with the BRICS countries and Vietnam on the basis of new approaches displaying flexibility and expediency.

At the same time, Russia’s President believes that his country should develop the technologies for the production of special equipment for the military-industrial complex, which it purchases abroad.

The deepening of civilized and mutually advantageous partnership is a very important instrument for the safeguarding of Russia’s foreign-policy interests and an inseparable part of efforts to counter global challenges and threats, the President summed up.
