Technical aspects of the contract had been agreed, says the Interfax news agency report.

Russia said on Wednesday that it expected to sign a deal with India this year on the sale of S-400 surface-to-air missiles, according to Interfax news agency.

It cited Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation as saying that all the technical aspects of the contract had been agreed and a price just needed to be decided.

“I think that in the current year, we will sign the corresponding contract document,” Interfax quoted Dmitry Shugaev, head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, as saying.
