MOSCOW, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Uganda, which bought six fighter jets from a Russian arms export company this year, has an option to buy six more, officials said Friday.

Ugandan officials are in talks with Rosoboronexport about the option for additional Sukhoi Su-30 jets, RIA Novosti reported.

"Now, we are talking about an option, the Ugandans expressed interest in buying another six aircraft of this type," the company's deputy director, Alexander Mikheyev, said Friday at an arms exhibition in South Africa.

Ghana has signed contracts with Rosoboronexport for six Mi-17 helicopters, Mikheyev said.

Ghana will receive its first two helicopters in about a year, he said.
