PostSubject: Fighter jets purchase is a political decision: Brazilian FM   Thu Jan 07, 2010 3:28 am

BRASILIA, Jan. 6 (Xinhua) -- Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim said on Wednesday in Geneva that Brazil's final decision on the purchase of 36 fighter planes will be political, local media reported.
"We will take into account the technical issues, but the final decision rests with the Minister of Defense and the President...It is not a purely military decision. It is a political decision," the minister told a news conference.
On Tuesday, the Brazilian Air Force announced it had completed the report on proposals by three companies: the Swedish Saab, manufacturer of the Gripen NG; the U.S. Boeing company, producer of the F-18 Super Hornet; and the consortium Rafale International, led by French company Dassault. But the result was not disclosed.
