China May Build An-70

MOSCOW -- Russia and Ukraine will build the new-generation Antonov 70 transport aircraft, not with Germany, but with China as had been planned, Interfax quoted Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev as saying Monday.

He said that negotiations with Berlin had resulted in the Germans saying they would not support the joint Ukrainian-Russian An-70 project, Interfax reported.

"We won't try to win over the Germans, but will complete the project with China," Sergeyev said.
