Minister of National Defence Mihai Fifor on Wednesday announced that the negotiations with General Dynamics company for the armoured carriers have reached the final stage.
"We have reached the final stage of negotiations with the General Dynamics company for the armoured carriers. Many people asked why we didn't sign the agreement late last year. The answer is very clear - for we did not negotiate enough and we wanted to negotiate of such a manner to obtain deal as good as possible, so that the Romanian state would benefit of a fair price for the carriers. We hope that this week we will be able to conclude the negotiations with General Dynamics and sign the agreement," Fifor told a press conference.
He also added that the investment programme for the endowment of the army is going as planned and voiced hope that next week the project regarding the acquisition of the HIMARS rockets will also reach the Government, so that in the beginning of the new parliamentary session it could be approved by the Legislative.
According to the Minister, the project regarding the multifunctional corvettes is almost ready, with the documents for the second Patriot system to be signed this year. AGERPRES (RO - author: Roberto Stan, editor: Claudia Stanescu; EN - author: Cristina Zaharia, editor: Adina Panaitescu)
