Russian Combat Helicopters Delivered to Iraq

By SOP newswire

Question: A number of Iraqi and foreign media have again carried reports recently that another batch of Russian Mi-17 combat helicopters had arrived for Iraq`s security agencies. Have you comment?

Answer: This information does not correspond to reality. We have already officially refuted such rumors periodically appearing in the press. I can only repeat it " Russia is not supplying any arms to Iraq, in view of the acute military-political situation in that country, particularly the mounting ethnic and religious contradictions, aggravated by the foreign military presence. Of course, these restrictions do not extend to our cooperation with Iraq in other fields.
