Greece Agrees to Buy 18 French Fighter Jets in Military Beef Up in the Balkans

The Greek parliament approved the purchase of 18 Dassault-made Rafale jets from France for €2.5 billion on Thursday, in a deal due to be signed by the Greek and French defence ministers later this month, the Greek newspaper Ekathimerini has reported.
Athens agreed to buy fighter jets as it moves ahead with plans to beef up its military capacity during a dispute with neighbouring Turkey over energy resources in the Mediterranean.

Despite the heavy burden of the coronavirus pandemic some countries in the Balkans have stepped up their military beef up buying heavy weapons of different kinds which has turned into a regional race not in line with the perspective of strengthening stability and peace.
