The administration informed Congress on Monday of its approval of the possible sale of tactical missiles and Joint Stand Off Weapons, the US State Department said in a notice.
The approval of the proposed sale comes as Finland seeks to join NATO.
“The proposed sale will improve Finland’s air-to-air and air-to-surface weapons capabilities and will positively impact U.S. relations with countries in the Nordic region,” the notice continued. “Finland intends to use these defense articles and services for its fighter aircraft fleet. Finland will have no difficulty absorbing this equipment into its armed forces.”
