Margarita Robles explained that Spain is in solidarity with other countries regarding the coalition, but it does not have such aircraft in service.
Margarita Robles explained that the country did not have these fighters in service, so she could neither transfer them nor teach them.
Spain stated that it would not transfer F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, since it does not have them in service. Accordingly, she will also not be able to train Ukrainian pilots to work with them. This is reported by TeleMadrid, citing Defense Minister Margaret Robles.
“Absolute and complete support within the framework of our availability for Ukraine. On the issue of fighters, we are in solidarity with other countries, but it is Spain that does not have F-16s,” the official explained.
According to her, Madrid showed great support for the Ukrainians and delivered six of the ten Leopard tanks. In addition, the country transfers weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and trains military doctors.
Recall that US President Joe Biden approved plans to train Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighter jets.
It is known that Ukrainian pilots have already started training on these aircraft.
