Lockheed Martin CEO says could sell F-35 fighters to Germany

KONGSBERG, Norway, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Lockheed Martin could sell its F-35 fighter jets to Germany if Washington and Berlin agree to a deal, the U.S. defence contractor’s chief executive told Reuters on Thursday.

“I saw in the media that there is an interest in the F-35, and we stand ready so support the U.S. government on their interactions with the German government on their assessment of the F-35,” Marillyn Hewson told Reuters on a visit to Norway.

“I do think it would be the best choice for them,” she added.

Lockheed also hopes to increase its sales of the F-35 to South Korea, Hewson said. (Reporting by Joachim Dagenborg, writing by Terje Solsvik, editing by Gwladys Fouche)
