Talks with UAE ongoing to buy French Rafale jets

SOURCE : Reuters
Talks between the United Arab Emirates and France over the sale of French Rafale fighter jets are still ongoing despite recent tensions, the French president’s office said on Wednesday.
A senior French official told Reuters in early October that the United Arab Emirates had suspended talks to buy 60 Rafales, but Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan and President Nicolas Sarkozy discussed the potential deal over lunch in Paris, an official at Sarkozy’s office said.
“The discussions have not been broken off,” he said.
