Macron to Meet Miçotakis for Sale of Rafale to Greece 7 September, 2020

Greek Prime Minister Kiriakos Miçotakis and French President Emmanuel Macron will meet for Rafale warplanes, which are on the agenda that Greece will buy from France.

Greece will buy 10 platforms from France, the remaining eight Rafales will be in inventory as grants, Greek local media reported. The 10 Greek Rafales would join the ongoing production of Egypt's 20 aircraft, but as Dassault would have difficulty producing all 30 aircraft in a short time, it is considering reaching an agreement with Egypt to supply them with an initial batch of 10 aircraft and deliver the other 10 to Greece.

Miçotakis and Macron will meet on the French island of Corsica on Thursday (September 10, 2020). Greece is known to want to add more combat ships to its inventory, including jets as well as French frigates.
