Kuwait Audit Bureau Must Approve Eurofighter Deal

talian defense firm Finmeccanica and Eurofighter have to present cost breakdowns to the Kuwaiti State Audit Bureau before they see a signature on a deal for 28 fighter jets secured.
Kuwaiti news portal cited parliamentary sources stating that the deal has been refused by the Kuwaiti State Audit Bureau due to a lack of information on costs regarding technical support, training, spare parts and the construction of building structures.
The deal was due to be inked on Jan. 31 after an invitation was extended to Italian Defense Minister Roberta Pinotti by Kuwaiti Defense Minister Sheikh Khalid al-Jarrah al-Sabah.
