03.06.2016 Press release

Talks between a delegation from Russia’s Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation), led by the Company’s Deputy CEO Sergey Goreslavsky, and the political and military leadership of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana on establishing and developing contacts in the area of military and technical cooperation (MTC) ended in Georgetown.

The Rosoboronexport delegation met Prime Minister and First Vice President Moses Nagamootoo, Second Vice President and Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan, Guyana Armed Force Chief of Staff Brig. Gen. Mark Phillips and Assistant Commissioner of Police David Ramnarine. The presentations of Russian security equipment and systems were held for Guyana’s defense and law enforcement representatives.

“During consultations held in October 2015 between the Foreign Ministries of the two countries, Guyana reaffirmed its keen interest in multi-faceted cooperation with the Russian Federation. It was agreed to develop a “road map” for the further development of bilateral ties in various fields of cooperation, including military-technical cooperation,” said the head of Rosoboronexport’s delegation Sergey Goreslavsky.

The Guyanese side was informed that Rosoboronexport is ready to begin bilateral cooperation with the Armed Forces, the Ministry of Public Security and Police, primarily in the implementation of the advanced Russian-Made Security Systems project, drawing on years of its successful experience of cooperation with defense and law enforcement agencies of foreign states. Rosoboronexport also expressed willingness to participate in the national program for upgrading and reequipping Guyana’s defense and law enforcement agencies and in the implementation of the Safe City of Georgetown project scheduled to be launched in 2017.

Rosoboronexport views Guyana’s market as a platform not only for establishing and developing bilateral military-technical relations, but also for promoting Russian high-tech products in other Caribbean countries to ensure their national security,” said Sergey Goreslavsky.
