Le Bourget, Jun 23: All contracts for military-technological cooperation with Libya have been suspended, the chief delegate of Russia's top arms exporter Rosoboronexport has said.

"There is a corresponding UN Security Council resolution, and the decision made by the country's leadership. Therefore, all contracts for military-technical cooperation with Libya have been suspended," Sergei Kornev said at the ongoing Paris Air Show 2011 yesterday.

Responding to a question from Itar-Tass about the future of the Libyan contracts, concluded in early 2010 (about 1.3 billion euros worth), he said that "Air Force-related contracts had been prepared (initialed) and they were solid and interesting."

"If the UN Security Council lifts sanctions, we shall be ready to get back to acting on these contracts," he said.
