"At this forum we will discuss supplies of MiG-35s with our partners. These are, first of all, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Latin American countries, in particular Peru," Tarasenko told reporters.
In July, Tarasenko said that the corporation would begin mass production of MiG-35 fighters in the next two years following the end of testing, noting that the company was considering cooperation not only with the Russian Aerospace Forces but also with the foreign partners.
