Air forces of Russia and India may hold joint exercises in the next few years, Russian Air Force chief, Col. Gen. Alexander Zelin, said after his visit to India.
"We will definitely hold joint exercises," he said.
The proposal has already been submitted for consideration to the governments of the two states. The joint exercises, if approved, may take place in 2011 or 2012.
India, along with Venezuela, Algeria and Malaysia, is a major buyer of Russian military aircraft. The total volume of deliveries to these countries exceeded $2 billion in 2008.
