US opposes sale of MiG-29 fighter aircraft to Sudan
The State Department has said Washington will view with "grave concern" the sale of Russian MiG-29 fighter aircraft to Sudan, if reports of such sales were confirmed.
"The United States opposes all arms transfers to Sudan, which is a state sponsor of terrorism," the Department said in a posted response to a question taken at the regular briefing.
On Friday, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said in response to questions that the status of the MiG-29 sale is "still rather unclear." "Nothing that I have seen has actually said where they stand under this contract, whether it's a contract or a delivery or a soon-to-be delivery on contract," he commented. (menareport.com)
