Talks between the two countries to work out details of the contract
The government of Romania has approved the purchase of 32 F-16 military aircraft produced by U.S.-based Lockheed Martin, which are expected to remain operational for a minimum of 10 years. These are combat aircraft that Norway will sell to Bucharest for an amount of around 454 million euros. The talks to work out the details will start soon.
"According to the bill, the Romanian government will award the contract to the government of the Kingdom of Norway for the acquisition of 32 F-16 aircraft, with attached initial logistical support and a complementary package of goods and services (provided by the US government)", the Romanian Defense Ministry, led by Vasile Dîncu, said in a note.
