Sale of U.S. Military Equipment from Germany to Greece (Taken Question)

Question:   What is the status of the sale of U.S. military equipment from Germany to Greece?

Answer:   The Government of Germany has made a request to the United States for approval to retransfer U.S.-origin artillery to Greece. U.S. law requires that a recipient of such defense articles must obtain prior consent from the United States before the retransfer of the articles to a third-party recipient. This request is under internal review. Once a decision has been made, we will respond to the Government of Germany.
