AIRSHOW-Germany, France sign documents on joint weapons developments

BERLIN, April 26 (Reuters) - German and French officials on Thursday signed four documents that they said underscored their determination to work together to jointly develop new weapons systems, including a maritime airborne warfare aircraft and a new fighter jet.

German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen and her French counterpart Florence Parly both described the move as historic.

Von der Leyen underscored that other European countries could still join the project to develop a new combat aircraft.
