Report: Talks on New Israeli-Russian Military Venture

Israel and Russia are holding talks on a joint military enterprise, according to a Friday morning report by Kol Yisrael government radio. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin of Russia told a local television channel on Thursday that the Moscow government is trying to persuade Israel to develop a pilotless aircraft to be used by the two countries and sold to other countries.

Russia has bought Israeli unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the past. While Rogozin said Russia is aimed at technology with local production in mind, his country is considering purchasing more Israeli UAVs and ground control systems.
