Qatar in talks with Russia for procuring Su-35 fighters

Russian presidential assistant for military-technical cooperation, Vladimir Kozhin revealed his government is in talks with the Qatar Armed Forces about supplying Su-35 multirole fighter jets.

According to the TASS, Kozhin confirmed that Qatar is looking at acquiring the Sukhoi Su-35  ‘Flanker-E’ multirole combat aircraft.

A while ago, on Jan. 25, Qatar’s Ambassador to Russia Fahad bin Mohammed Al-Attiyah told TASS that Doha was holding “advanced negotiations” with Moscow over the purchase of S-400 air missile defense systems.


The Chinese People’s Liberation Army Air Force and the Indonesian Air Force have also ordered the Su-35 fighter aircraft.
