"We have signed and are now implementing a contract on the supplies of Kalashnikov assault rifles. The next stage will be the launch of production of the assault rifle for the needs of third countries as well as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia", Mikheev told reporters.
The director general noted that the two countries would soon agree on a project over the joint production of AK103 in Saudi Arabia.
"We will introduce this proposal to the government to implement this project. I think that there are three to four months left until the procedures of the whole project are approved", he added.
