Israel to sell arms worth millions of dollars to Azerbaijan - paper

TEL AVIV, September 26 (RIA Novosti) - Israel is to supply weapons worth millions of dollars to Azerbaijan, an Israeli newspaper said on Friday.

According to agreements signed by the Israeli Defense Ministry and Azerbaijan, three Israeli defense industry companies - Israel Military Industries, Tadiran Communications and Soltam - will supply Baku with MLRS systems, mortars, ammunition and radio equipment, the Haaretz daily said.

Azerbaijan, which borders on Iran, is rich in oil and natural gas. The former Soviet republic plans to produce 52.5 million tons of crude and 27.4 billion cu m of natural gas this year.

Azeri President Ilham Aliyev earlier voiced a desire for closer relations with Israel. He has also spoken of the 'threat' that both countries face from Iran, the paper said.
