Countries of the Asian-Pacific Region are traditional buyers of Russian materiel, Viktor Komardin, a senior executive of the state enterprise Rosoboronexport, has told RIA Novosti. He heads the Russian delegation to the international exhibition of military and naval materiel which is running in Singapore. According to Komardin, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka recently joined the enterprise's old partners -- India, China and Vietnam.

Apart from offering end products, Russia is ready to assist its Asian customers in building ships and vessels at local ship-building plants and in establishing repairs shops.
