17 June 2013 - 4:36pm

At the aircraft exhibition opened today in French Le Bourget, Rosoboronexport has signed the first export contract to supply Ka-52 helicopters to Iraq, a source in the Russian delegation says.

The head of the Rosoboronexport delegation at the show in Le Bourget, Alexander Mikheyev, told a press conference that the first contract for the Ka-52s has been signed, but did not specify the amount or the country.

"The contract was signed with Iraq in the framework of an agreement of 2012," the source said, adding that this is in fact the first contract as part of a large agreement between the two countries on the acquisition of arms and military equipment from Russia.

"So we can assume that the agreement on more than $4 billion comes into force," RIA Novosti quotes their source.
