    Sergey Goreslavsky, Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport's deputy director said that firm expects an invitation for ‘face-to-face’ talks with the Brazilian air forces on the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft artillery systems.

    KUBINKA (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) – Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport has issued a preliminary response to the Brazilian air forces’ purchase request for the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft artillery systems and awaits an invitation for consultations, the firm’s deputy director told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    "On April 25, 2016, Russia handed over a preliminary answer to the Brazilian Air Force to the Request for Proposal (RFP) on the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile system. We now expect an invitation for ‘face-to-face’ talks," Sergey Goreslavsky said at the Army-2016 military and technical forum near Moscow.

    Goreslavsky noted that Brazil’s domestic affairs related to the impeachment of its suspended president have not impeded the course of the talks.
