India Eyes Ship Sale

MOSCOW -- Russian Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev will discuss the possible sale of a Soviet-era aircraft carrier during talks in India, Interfax reported Friday.

Rear Admiral Mikhail Barskoy said India is interested in buying the carrier, the Admiral Gorshkov, but wants the vessel to be modernized and repaired.

Sergeyev was to depart Friday for the talks on cooperation and possible arms sales. India has long been a leading customer for Soviet and Russian weapons.
