"BrahMos Aerospace is a prominent example of successful cooperation in the High Technology arena before the world and should be a benchmark for futuristic collaboration between both the friendly nations," Dmitry Rogozin on completion of his visit remarked.

"We are very pleased that our partner country has such potent high accuracy weapon system which has been developed jointly. We should continue to evolve our system so that we remain the leaders in the years to come," he added.
