French President Macron regrets Belgium choosing Lockheed jets

French President Macron regrets Belgium choosing Lockheed jetsBRATISLAVA/PARIS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron said on Friday that he regretted Belgium’s decision to choose Lockheed Martin’s F-35 stealth jets over the Eurofighter Typhoon planes. “It’s a decision that was the result of a process which I greatly respect and which was linked to political constraints specific to Belgium, which are not for me to comment upon, but strategically it goes against European interests,” said Macron at a news conference held with Slovakia President Andrej Kiska. “For my part, I regret the choice that was made.” On Thursday, Belgium announced its decision to go with the Lockheed Martin planes to replace its ageing F-16s in a 4 billion euro ($ 4.5 billion) deal, saying the decision came down to price.
