Sudan confirms purchase of Russian MiG-29 jet fighters

Sudan has bought an undisclosed number of MiG-29 fighters from Russia, the northeast African state's defense minister said on Friday.

"The deal is done. The aircraft have been bought," Abdel Rahim Mohamed Hussein told a RIA Novosti news conference.

Russia earlier denied media reports of MiG-29 deliveries to Sudan directly or via third countries.

A Sudanese opposition newspaper reported on Monday that the Sudanese government had taken delivery of 12 MiG-29 fighters through a Belarusian company.
