Washington is working to promote its weapons through intimidation, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday.
Zakharzva told reporters: “Moscow has heard US threats on sanctions against Egypt for buying fighter” Su-35 “Russian.”
“This is another example of aggressive behavior. Unfortunately, this is Washington’s current approach,” Zakharova said.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the Pentagon and the US State Department, in a joint letter,
cautioned the Egyptian authorities about the dangers of sanctions if they buy Russian Su-35 fighter jets.
“We see this phenomenon as evidence that the United States is striving to block the development of relations between Russia and also other countries,” Zakharova said.
This is about military-technical cooperation, Zakharova said.
“We understand that the ideologues behind this concept in Washington are trying to kill two birds with one stone: on the one hand to harm Russia,
disrupt the deal, and at the same time impose their American weapons on foreign buyers,”
This was the newspaper “Kommersant” Russian, has been quoted earlier, the existence of a new arms deal between Moscow and Cairo,
where Russia is providing Egypt with dozens of heavy multi-purpose fighter “Sukhoi 35”.
The contract requires the supply of more than 20 fighters and military equipment worth about $ 2 billion,
which came into effect at the end of 2018, with supplies to begin in 2020 or 2021.
