Indonesia will sign a deal for the procurement of eight 4.5 generation Sukhoi Su-35 during the Russian-ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) summit in Moscow in the third week of this month.

“President Joko Widodo will visit Russia in the third week of May to participate in the Russia-ASEAN Summit and will witness the signing of an agreement,” Indonesian Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu was quoted as saying by Antara news Tuesday.

“The plan to purchase eight 4.5-generation Sukhoi Su-35 jet fighters was made after Indonesia bought 24 Sukhoi 27/30 aircraft,” Ryacudu said.

According to Salim Mengga, a member of the House of Representatives Commission I overseeing defense, foreign affairs and information, the purchase of Sukhoi Su-35 aircraft was aimed at strengthening the capabilities of the Indonesian Defence Force.
