Le Vietnam se retrouvera prochainement parmi les trois premiers importateurs d'armes et de matériels de guerre russes, a déclaré jeudi à Moscou le directeur général du Centre russe d'analyse de commerce mondial d'armes (TsAMTO) Igor Korottchenko. "On peut affirmer que le Vietnam se retrouvera à moyen terme parmi les trois premiers importateurs d'armements russes compte tenu des programmes importants de livraison d'armes à ce pays dont la réalisation a déjà été annoncée", a indiqué M.Korottchenko, commentant la prochaine mise à l'eau du premier des six sous-marins du projet 636 commandés par le Vietnam. En 2008-2011, les exportations russes d'armes conventionnelles vers le Vietnam se sont chiffrées à 1,88 milliard de dollars, soit 6,3% des exportations militaires russes.
