    MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Russia treats Cuba as a reliable friend and is ready to actively develop with the Caribbean island cooperation both in military and military-technical spheres, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Friday.

    "We intend to continue cooperation in supplying the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces with modern weapons and military hardware," Shoigu said at a meeting in Moscow with Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Cuba Ricardo Cabrisas.

    According to the Russian defense minister, the Russian-Cuban cooperation received an additional boost following Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to Havana last year.

    "All decisions made during the visit are subject to attentive control and implementation in our country," Shoigu said.

    "Our cooperation in the military sector is actively developing and my February meetings in Havana proved our common drive toward the expansion of our partnership relations in the military and military-technical spheres," the Russian minister said.

    Shoigu also thanked Cabrisas for warm receptions provided by Cuba to Russian warship each time they call on the Havana port.

    "We also enjoy rich experience of Cuban personnel training in our [Russian] various education establishments," Shoigu said. "We hope to carry on with this tradition and expand our cooperation in personnel training."

    Cabrisas said Shoigu’s visit to Havana this February "helped to strengthen cooperation" between Cuba and Russia.

    Deputy Chairman of the Russian government Dmitry Rogozin offers a project for assembly and promotion of Ansat helicopter in Cuba. He offered the project for consideration at the 13th meeting of the Russian-Cuban Intergovernmental Commission on trade, economic, scientific and technical cooperation, TASS reports.

    “I think that this helicopter will be in demand in Latin America and Caribbean and I also believe, that in light of establishment of an MRO center responsible for servicing helicopters made in Russia (and USSR) in this region, we can create a separate project for assembly and promotion of Ansat helicopters in Latin America,” Rogozin said. He added that this project looks very promising.

    In his own turn the head of Republic of Tatarstan, Rustam Minikhanov, noted that Tatarstan “is ready to launch the production of these helicopters in Cuba”.
