There is still room for improvement in China's fulfillment of the agreement on the protection of intellectual property rights in military-technical cooperation with Russia, Russian Ambassador to Beijing Andrei Denisov said.
"Life shows there is still room for improvement, but we are inspired by the positive attitude of our Chinese partners," he said in an interview with Interfax.
Russia and China signed the agreement in 2008 to spell out mechanisms of the protection of Russian products, the diplomat said.
"We are defending our interests in every stage of our scientific, technological and military-technical cooperation and demand that our partners observe copyright norms and cooperation rules," Denisov said.
He also said that Moscow and Beijing continued to design a heavy helicopter on the Mil Mi-26 platform.
"Russian Helicopters and China's Avicopter have signed a number of inter-corporate documents to support the project. They made a project feasibility study and elaborated the optimal cooperation scheme," the diplomat said.
"Working groups have been formed for a more profound analysis of technical requirements to the future helicopter," he said.
