    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport has held talks on supplying Russian defense systems to the Co-operative Republic of Guyana with the country's leadership, the corporation said Friday.

    "Talks between the Rosoboronexport delegation, headed by deputy chief executive Sergei Goreslavsky, and the political and military leadership of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana were held in Georgetown with the aim of establishing and developing contacts in the area of military and technical cooperation," the corporation said in a statement.

    The Russian delegation met Prime Minister and First Vice President Moses Nagamootoo, Second Vice President and Minister of Security Khemraj Ramjattan, Guyana Defence Force Chief of Staff Mark Phillips and Assistant Commissioner of Police David Ramnarine, according to the statement.
