Israel made a deal in Davos to sell Croatia its used Air Force F-16 warplanes for half a billion dollars.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with his Croatian counterpart, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, in a Thursday night meeting in Davos on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum to discuss the sale.

The two men “agreed to move forward on the sale of Israeli F-16s to Croatia according to the terms of the tender,” the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said in a statement.

“This development is a further expression of the deep ties between the two countries. The two leaders agreed to expand economic, security, water, agricultural, academic and tourism cooperation.”

Israel and Croatia have maintained diplomatic relations for more than 20 years, although trade has included nothing in the defense field.
