The United States has offered to sell Slovakia 12 new Bell AH-1Z Viper helicopters at a two-thirds discount after Bratislava sent its retired MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, Defence Minister Jaroslav Nad said on Wednesday.
Nad said his government sill had to approve the deal under which it would pay $340 million for a package worth more than $1 billion.
The deal was offered under the U.S. Foreign Military Financing programme, Nad said in his post on Facebook.
