The Union government has cleared the deal with France for buying 36 Rafale fighter jets in fly away condition at a cost of €7.878 billion. The deal will be signed, in the presence of French Defence Minister Jean Yves Le Drian.
The contract for the deal was cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Security earlier. The price was fixed in May. The government also cleared the Inter-Governmental Agreement. Mr. Drian arrives along with the CEOs of Dassault Aviation, Thales and MBDA and top government officials.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. The Indian government has cleared the Rafale deal along with which country?
2. Who is the French Defence Minister?
