Commenting on the recent media reports that UVZ will sale extra 100 T-90S tanks to Azerbaijan, the UZV representatives said the question is about the contract signed between the two sides in 2012 on the sale and purchase of 100 T-90S tanks. The first batch of the order will be delivered to Baku in early 2013. The delivery is being conducted on schedule.

According to information obtained by APA, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry and UVZ are discussing on the sale and purchase of T-90SM tanks. There is no a relevant contract.
