The Pakistani military officials express interest in Russian arms.

Russia is not engaged in negotiations on Su-35 fighter jets supply to Pakistan, Anatoly Punchuk, the deputy director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC), said Wednesday.

In September, the Pakistani military officials expressed interest in Russian arms, including air defence systems and tanks.

"Currently we are not holding talks on supplies of Su-35 fighter jets to Pakistan," Punchuk said.

In September, Pakistani Ambassador to Russia told Sputnik that Chief of Air Staff of the Pakistan Air Force Sohail Aman had "fruitful talks" in Moscow in July on purchasing of Russian Su-35 (NATO reporting name: Flanker-E) fighter jets.
