Biden Backs F-16 Sales to Turkey Amid Deal to Expand NATO

By Jared Malsin in Istanbul and Vivian Salama in Washington

President Biden affirmed his assist for the sale of a brand new fleet of F-16 jet fighters to Turkey on Thursday, two days after the Turkish president dropped his threatened veto of Sweden and Finland’s membership within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

“We should sell them the F-16 jets and modernize those jets as well. It’s not in our interest not to do that,” Mr. Biden mentioned at a information convention after the NATO leaders’ summit in Madrid.
