President Alpha Conde told Sputnik Guinea and Russia have not reached an agreement on deliveries of helicopters.

ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) – Russia and Guinea have not yet reached an agreement on deliveries of helicopters, Guinean President Alpha Conde told Sputnik on Thursday.

"On helicopters no, it is not," Conde said answering a corresponding question on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

In April, Russia offered Guinea to deliver civil helicopters of various types, including light multipurpose Ka-226T and medium-sized Mi-17.

The Russian Helicopters company also expressed readiness to repair, equip and modernize the Russian and Soviet helicopters already delivered to Guinea.
