US Ambassador to Turkey, Jeff Flake, in a post on platform X posted on Sunday, referred to the completion of the process in Congress for the approval of the sale of F-16 aircraft to Turkey.
The 15-day deadline for objections to the government’s official request for the sale of 40 new fighter jets and upgrade kits and equipment for 79 aircraft of the existing Turkish F-16 fleet has expired.
Kudos to the US Congress for approving this F-16 sale on a bipartisan basis. This is good for our security and for the security of our allies. https://t.co/3tX49MoFrj— Jeff Flake (@JeffFlake) February 11, 2024
