US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says NATO members can send fighter jets to Ukraine, and the US will assist those countries in replacing the aircraft they would be missing as a result.
Blinken is asked if Poland, a NATO member, is allowed to send fighter jets to Ukraine.
“That gets a green light, in fact, we’re talking with our Polish friends right now about what we might be able to do to backfill their needs if in fact they choose to provide these fighter jets to Ukraine,” President Joe Biden’s top diplomat tells CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
.@SecBlinken: The U.S. has given the “green light” to NATO countries if they choose to provide fighter jets to Ukraine, one day after President Zelensky made a plea to members of Congress to provide them during a Saturday Zoom call. https://t.co/liDkdNCAFI pic.twitter.com/3vHqk6YzQe
