Indonesia plans to purchase amphibious planes and submarines from Russia, Indonesian Ambassador to Moscow Mohamad Wahid Supriyadi said on Monday.
"We really plan to purchase amphibious planes developed by the Sukhoi design bureau and Kilo-class submarines from Russia," the diplomat, quoted by Tass, said.
"We’re working on these purchases," he said.
"Relevant Russian specialists will be invited to Indonesia," he added.
According to the Indonesian diplomat, Jakarta is interested in developing military and technical cooperation with Russia.
"Russian products in the sphere of the defense and industrial sector are no inferior to Western analogs. It is worth noting Russia’s considerable successes in the sphere of military and technical cooperation," the ambassador said. "We hope for close interaction in this field," he added.
In reply to TASS’ specifying question later, the ambassador said Indonesia wanted to buy two Russian submarines.
