Kuwait says to sign Eurofighter deal with Italy next week

KUWAIT CITY: A Eurofighter Typhoon jet fighter flies at the ILA 2014 Berlin Air Show on May 21, 2014 in Schoenefeld, Germany. The ILA 2014 is open from May 20-25.

Kuwait will sign a deal next week to buy Eurofighter jets, Kuwait’s state news agency KUNA said on Thursday, citing the defence minister.

Kuwait signed a memorandum of understanding in September to buy 28 Eurofighter jets, the consortium that makes the aircraft said, in a deal worth up to 8 billion euros ($9 billion).

Italy’s defence minister will be in Kuwait next week to finalise the deal, KUNA said, citing Kuwait’s Defence Minister Sheikh Khaled Jarrah al-Sabah.
