"I believe that the Indian air carriers may be interested in the purchase of the MS-21 airliner on preferential terms. Today your delegation visited the Irkutsk Aircraft Plant, I hope that the agreements reached during the visit will be implemented, "the head of the region said in the message at the meeting. Also, the conversation touched on the cooperation of Russia and India within the licensed production of military SU-30MKI, which also produces Irkut, - from 2000 the Indian HAL Corp. leads the assembly of these fighters. The completion of this program is planned in 2020 year. Sergei Levchenko announced the readiness of the Russian side to consider the issue of "creating a light combat aircraft, based on the Yak-130 training aircraft, that meets the requirements of the Ministry of Defense of India."
