    Russia, Brazil hold talks on delivery of air defense systems


    Russia and Brazil are negotiating a deal for the delivery of unspecified air defense systems to the Latin American country, a Russian government official said on Friday.
    "We are considering any system in general terms," said Mikhail Dmitriyev, head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.
    "We don't mind what they agree to buy. It could be Tor systems," he added.
    The Tor-M1, developed by the Russian company Almaz-Antei, is a low-to-medium-altitude, short-range surface-to-air missile system designed to intercept aircraft, cruise missiles, precision-guided munitions and unpiloted aerial vehicles.
    The talks are being held in the framework of the Russian-Brazilian joint trade commission.
    Russia recently delivered three out of 12 Mi-35M Hind E attack helicopters to Brazil under a 2008 contract, worth $150 million.
