Russia and Indonesia have reached an agreement for the latter to purchase eight Su-35 fighter jets.

A formal contract is expected to be signed before the end of the year. Pre-contract negotiations had begun in March.

"Prior consent has been reached on the contract to deliver Su-35 to Indonesia, it will be (signed) this year," Viktor Kladov,  director of Rostec’s international cooperation and regional policy department was quoted as saying by Tass in a June 6 report.

However, there is no comment to this report from the Indonesian side. In the past couple of years,  Russian media has reported on at least two occasions that Moscow and Jakarta  were close to a deal.

However, a couple of reports emanating from Indonesia pointed out that Jakarta had wanted a liberal financial package to enable it to purchase the aircraft.
