Turkey to Sell F 16 Fighter Jets to Azerbaijan

ANKARA (Azg)–Azerbaijan plans to buy locally produced (with a US license) F-16 fighter jets from Turkey–reported commander of the Air Force of Azerbaijan Rail Rizayev.

It is expected that Turkey seek permission of the US and NATO for the sale. A high ranking politician in Turkey said "if we sell F-16s to Egypt–why can’t we sell them to Azerbaijan."

Turkey has already produced 200 such jets–and sold 46 to Egypt. A total of 286 F-16 fighter jets are scheduled to be produced.
