Kuwait will have to pay KD 2.6 billion (US $8.6 billion) for the purchase of 28 Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets.

Head of the budgets committee MP Adnan Abdulsamad was cited as quoting the price for the fighter jets by Kuwait Times Thursday.

The National Assembly yesterday approved a law allowing the government to withdraw KD 150 million from state reserves to support the defense ministry. 

In January, the Assembly approved additional funds of KD 3 billion for military purchases over the next 10 years. The Eurofighter consortium said in September that Kuwait had agreed to buy 28 Typhoon jets.
