Azerbaijan is an important economic partner of Russia, including in military-technical cooperation, Director General of Rosoboronexport JSC Alexander Mikheev told reporters in Baku Sept. 25, RIA Novosti reported.


He said that the development of military-technical cooperation with Azerbaijan is facilitated by the absence of a language barrier, similar state and industry standards, as well as the availability of production and military personnel trained on general principles.

The press service of Rosoboronexport JSC said in a statement that the first facilities of Azerbaijan’s defense industry were created back in 1918. These were workshops for the repair of various military equipment and small arms.

“However, during the years of the Great Patriotic War two aircraft factories operated there, where fighter planes were manufactured and repaired,” the statement said. “Rockets for the legendary Katyusha multiple rocket launchers were also manufactured in Baku. Considering strong traditions of defense production in Azerbaijan, Rosoboronexport JSC offers Baku to continue their development together."
