24 CHASA - The Bulgarian government will have the final say in the 1.8 billion levs ($1.06 billion) deal for eight new fighter jets, after a defence ministry commission rated the U.S. offer for Lockheed Martin’s F-16s and Swedish bid for SAAB’s Gripen jets equally, sources said. Bulgaria is expected to choose a winner in January.

— The United States is committed to working with the Bulgarian government to tailor the final scope of a potential F-16 fighter jets sale to fit its budgetary and operational requirements, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement. (Standart, Duma, Monitor, 24 Chasa)
