Yossi Ben-Hanan, head of SIBAT, the Foreign Defense Assistance and Defense Export Department at the defence ministry told 'The Jerusalem Post'.
It included Israel's single largest sale to a foreign country made by the Israel Aircraft Industries in the sale of the Barak Naval anti-missile defense system, valued at some USD 450 million, Ben-Hanan
told the daily.
Unperturbed by the US entry into the Indian market, the defence official said it would not make a dent in Israeli defence sales to New Delhi.
"America sells fighter jets, tanks and helicopters and we do not compete with them," Ben-Hanan
said.On the contrary, he
said, that it may even lead to an increase.
"We can for example sell the necessary accompanying systems that they will need alongside the larger US platforms," Ben-Hanan
The world has put its faith in our industries through the deals it has signed with Israeli companies," Ben-Hanan
