January 02, 2012

Jan. 2 (Bloomberg) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel wrote a letter last month to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh encouraging his government to decide in favor of a bid by a Eurofighter partnership to build fighter jets.

Writing on behalf of Germany, the U.K., Italy and Spain, Merkel said a successful Eurofighter bid would mark a “deeper technological and economic partnership,” between India and the four countries, a chancellery spokesman said today in Berlin.
