MOSCOW — Algeria has demanded that Moscow take back several MiG fighter jets supplied under a major arms deal because of quality concerns, dealing a painful blow to Russian pride, press reports said yesterday.
The effort to return the planes, which was expected to top the agenda of visiting Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s talks yesterday in the Kremlin, could tarnish Russia’s reputation as a reliable supplier and damage its hopes to expand its niche in the world’s arms market.
Algeria said it wanted to return the first 15 MiG-29 fighter jets supplied last year and refused to take the remaining aircraft under a $1.3 billion contract, Russian press reports said. The 2006 deal envisaged the delivery of 34 MiG-29s in 2007-2008.
