ATHENS – Greece is reportedly planning to sell Bulgaria some of its old F-16 fighter jets and will lease new ones from the United States.

NATO asked Bulgaria in February to update its air force’s capability and the country’s defense officials have approached Athens about the possibility of buying between six and eight Fighting Falcon planes, Kathimerini said. The issue was first discussed when the country’s two defense ministers met in March.

Athens has approached Washington and gotten an okay for the idea.

There is a precedent for such a deal as Portugal sold 12 of its F-16s to Romania for $880 million in October 2013. Sources said the Hellenic Air Force would like the jets sold to be replaced by Block 52s, a variant of the F-16, but the US does not want to lease them.
