Panaji:  The Kalashnikov assault rifles could soon be manufactured in India and samples of the rifle's variants supplied to Indian manufacturing partners, a senior Russian defence trade official said today.

"There is a project for the production of Kalashnikov assault rifles in India. Some samples have been delivered to India for tests and after they are finished, we are ready to continue our cooperation in this field," said Mr Sergey Goreslavsky, deputy director general of Rosoboronexport.

Mr Goreslavsky was speaking at a media interaction at the ongoing DefExpo 2016 in south Goa's Betul village.

Rosoboronexport is the sole Russian state intermediary agency responsible for the import and export of a full range of defence and dual-use end products, technologies and services.
