MOSCOW, June 3 (Xinhua) -- Russia and Rwanda are discussing the supplies of air defense systems as part of bilateral military-technical cooperation, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Sunday.

The second meeting is planned for the autumn of this year in Moscow, Lavrov said.

Last year, Russia and Rwanda set up an intergovernmental commission for military-technical cooperation and held their first meeting in Kigali in 2017.

"We have really good cooperation in the military-technical sphere," Lavrov said, recalling that Rwanda is using Russian helicopters, vehicles and small arms.

Lavrov made the remarks during a joint press conference following talks with his Rwandan counterpart Louise Mushikiwabo in the African country's capital of Kigali, according to a press release of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
