Russia to sell 6 submarines to Vietnam, not Venezuela - paper

27 Apr, 10:41 PM

Russia is going to build six submarines for the Vietnamese navy, instead of selling them to the Venezuelan fleet as planned, a Russian paper reports.

The St. Petersburg naval dockyard Admiralteyskye Verfi and Vietnam will shortly sign the contract, worth $1.8 billion, AFP quoted the daily Kommersant as reporting Monday. The paper was citing sources close to Russian arms export agency Rosoboronexport.

"Initially it was expected that the submarines would be bought by Venezuela, but Rosoboronexport refused to clinch the deal with that country, largely due to a recent meeting between Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his American counterpart Barack Obama," Kommersant said.

Chavez, a ferocious foe of the United States under former US President George W. Bush, showed signs of warming to Obama during the Americas conference earlier this month, telling the new US president: "I want to be your friend."
