The Netherlands may send F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine after the pilots have completed training, APA reports citing Bloomberg.
The Dutch government has been in talks with US officials in recent weeks to get President Joe Biden's administration to give the "green light" for the aircraft supply to Ukraine, the agency's sources said.
The Netherlands has been exploring and discussing the plans to train Ukrainian pilots with its allies.
Although the Dutch government is willing to help strengthen Ukraine's air defence "as soon as possible", pilot training and planning for deploying fighter jets and logistics could take many months.
A Dutch Ministry of Defence spokeswoman said that the government would discuss the potential delivery of the F-16s to Ukraine later. She added that the current priority is pilot training.
