BEIJING, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) — China confirmed a deal to buy Su-35 fighter jets from Russia on Thursday.

“The Su-35 fighter jet project is one of the areas in which China and Russia are willing to cooperate,” said Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian in response to a question about the 2-billion-dollar deal.

The two countries will continue to enhance cooperation in military technology based on equality and mutual benefit, Wu said at a monthly press briefing.
