"Indonesia wants to purchase submarines of the type but the talk is about long-term plans as there are a lot of technical issues that should be discussed by the two countries," Supriyadi said in reply to a question about the plans to purchase Russian-made submarines.

Earlier, Russian presidential aide for military and technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin said that the Project 636 submarine furnished with the Kalibr missile was the most in-demand submarine on the global market today.

"Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and some other countries are in the pipeline. This is the most in-demand project," Kozhin said at the International Maritime Defense Show 2017 (IMDS 2017).

According to him, Russia has completed the delivery of Project 636 submarines to Vietnam.
