Indonesia will not cancel the purchase of the Su-35, despite the US sanctions


Indonesian Defense Minister Riamizard Riachudu said that his country does not intend to cancel the deal with Russia for the purchase of Su-35 fighter jets, despite the US anti-Russian sanctions and possible measures for cooperation with Moscow.

According to TASS, this statement was made by the head of the military department on the margins of a meeting of defense ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and dialogue partners (“SMOA plus”) held in Singapore.

“Never cancel. We are continuing the implementation of the contract, ”the minister answered the question about the possibility of suspending the agreements because of the US sanctions.

Earlier, Indonesian Ambassador to the Russian Federation Vahid Supriyadi also said that delays in the implementation of the agreements are related to "technical details" and not to the restrictive measures of Washington.
