Tender announced by Saudi Arabia will continue till September 18. The winner will be announced in the late September or early October.
"Delta started building the international network of sales a year ago, within the framework of which it mainly cooperates with the representatives of 22 countries in Africa and the Middle East," Chiteishvili noted.
"These countries inform the Center about their announced tenders," he said, adding that Delta also holds negotiations with several other countries.
Chiteishvili went on to note that tangible negotiations are also held with Egypt in connection with the delivery of 64 patrol types of armored vehicles.
