    The United Arab Emirates is interested in acquiring supermaneuverable Su-35 jets, according to Russia's trade minister.

    ABU DHABI (Sputnik) — The United Arab Emirates is interested in possible deliveries of Russia's Su-35 multirole air superiority fighters, Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov, who led the Russian delegation at the IDEX 2017 exhibition, said Monday.

    "Colleagues have expressed interest in the possible supplies of Su-35s, held relevant talks, we will discuss this in more detail," Manturov said.

    The 13th biennial IDEX kicked off on Sunday in the United Arab Emirates' capital of Abu Dhabi and will last through Thursday. The exhibition is the only one in the Middle East region to include the latest technology in land, sea and air defense sectors, traditionally visited by senior government and military officials from around the world.

    Russia's 4th++ generation combat plane, the supermaneuverable Su-35, is already being supplied to the Aerospace Forces and has even participated in Moscow's counterterrorism campaign in Syria. It employs technologies of the fifth generation. The first experimental Su-35 was first presented at Russia’s MAKS-2007 air show.
