Indonesia Negotiating for Purchase of Su-35s

Jakarta has discussed the purchase of Su-35s to replace country’s US-made Northrop F-5 Tiger II fighter jets for months. In September, Indonesian Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu said that the purchase decision was made. However soon after that, the Indonesian Defense Ministry officials denied that this decision was final and Indonesia was engaged in direct negotiations with Russia on the matter.

"Indonesia decided on its choice, what next – we will see," Viktor Kladov told RIA Novosti, answering a question about the progress of negotiations on the delivery of Su-35 to Jakarta.
