Default Sr. Official: Israel, US still disagree over sale of F16’s to Croatia

Sr. Official: Israel, US still disagree over sale of F16’s to Croatia

Israel and the US have not yet reached an agreement regarding the sale of 12 F-16 C/D Barak fighter jets to Croatia, a deal which is worth more than half a billion dollars, with Croatia demanding a decision be made by Friday.

When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Brasilia on Tuesday, Israel got “almost everything it asked” in the meeting, a senior diplomatic official told reporters on Wednesday on Netanyahu’s plane back to Israel after a five-day visit to Brazil.

“Israel had eight requests, and seven of them were answered,” the official said. “The only issue that remains for discussion is the jet sale to Croatia.”

The US is demanding that the F-16’s – planes they sold to Israel decades ago and that Israel has since upgraded – be stripped of the Israeli technology added to them before being sold. The official said that the issue is “stuck deep in bureaucracy.”
