American Boeing negotiating with Russian air concern on creating new airplane

The American corporation Boeing is negotiating with the Russian air concern Sukhoi about the creation of a new airplane that will be produced in Russia and exported abroad, said Alexander Vershbow, US Ambassador to Russia at a Moscow press conference.

Boeing is also interested in increasing its sales in Russia, he added. The company has already invested substantial sums in Russia's air industry, it employs Russian specialists and creates a large number of new jobs in Russia, the ambassador stressed. All this leads to stimulating the Russian airplane building industry, he believes.

The ambassador called on Russians to "abandon the stereotypes", according to which only one party wins in every deal. "We would like to create possibilities for all parties to be winners," Vershbow stressed.
