RIA Novosti

14:30 17/04/2012 KUALA LUMPUR, April 17 (RIA Novosti) - Malaysia is close to a contract with Russia on the delivery of Kornet antitank missile systems, Igla portable anti-aircraft missiles and is also negotiating a deal on Russian guided missile and patrol boats, Russian state-controlled arms exporter Rosoboronexport said on Tuesday.

Rosoboronexport deputy chief Viktor Komardin said Russia is ready to sell Malaysia a license to build Molniya-class guided missile boats and Mirazh-class patrol boats.

“Malaysia is interested in our Molniya and Mirazh boats,” he said.

“This refers to their construction under license at local shipyards as shipbuilding in Malaysia is well developed.”
