The US State Department said Tuesday that President Joe Biden has long been clear about his support for modernizing Türkiye's F-16 fleet, APA reports citing Haberler.

Asked when the State Department will move forward with the sale of F-16 fighter jets to Türkiye, the spokesperson said "President Biden has long been clear that he supports modernizing Türkiye's F-16 fleet, which is an investment in NATO interoperability."

"This proposed sale will support the national security interests of the United States, Türkiye and all NATO Allies."

"Congress has a key role in reviewing arms sales, and some members of Congress have publicly said that Türkiye's approval of Sweden's application to join NATO is a key consideration before they can support the sale of F-16s to Türkiye," the spokesperson added.
