ZHUKOVSKY, August 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The events in Egypt have caused a slight pause in military-technical cooperation with that country, the general director of Rosoboronexport, Anatoly Isaikin, said on Wednesday.
“The events in Egypt have caused a slight pause in military-technical cooperation with that country,” Isaikin admitted at a news conference. “We are all fulfilling our obligations. That country has not severed its contracts.”
