Argentina In Talks With Russia On Buying New Batch Of Mi-171E Helicopters

Argentina's and Russia's defense ministries are discussing Buenos Aires' potential acquisition of a new batch of Mi-171E transport helicopters, Argentinian ambassador Eduardo Zuain said in an interview with Sputnik.

Argentina currently uses two Mi-171E helicopters in its Antarctic exploration program.

"Argentina has recently appointed a new defense minister. We will send him reports on our agenda with Russia, which certainly includes the helicopters issue. As I have already said, our defense ministries are discussing it. I have no information right now but I know that the topic of helicopters is on the agenda," Zuain said.
