France, December 07: Indonesia, plagued by China’s aggressive imperialist policies, will now buy Rafale fighter jets from France. The agreement was confirmed by French Defense Minister Florence Parly in an interview. He said an agreement with Indonesia on the sale of 36 Rafale aircraft had been finalized. The two countries had been discussing the purchase of Raphael for several days. The agreement will now put pressure on the dragon’s imperialist policy in the South China Sea.
China’s imperialist policy is hurting many other neighboring countries, including India. Violence in the Doklama and Galvan valleys between India and China had created a lot of tension in both countries. India had earlier purchased 36 Rafale aircraft from France to augment its military capabilities. Now Indonesia, another bitter opponent of China, has also decided to buy Rafale aircraft from France.

France’s La Tribune financial website had earlier revealed the details of the deal. But his report mentioned that he would buy 48 Rafale aircraft instead of 36. “Jakarta is keen to increase its defense capabilities with France and the Raphael aircraft purchase agreement is in the final stages,” it said. The report also states that the Raphael aircraft deal will be agreed later this year.
Strategic relations between France and Indonesia have only recently begun. In 2019, Indonesia and France signed an agreement to purchase H225M Airbus helicopters. According to the Nikkei Asian Review, the agreement was discussed during Indonesian Defense Minister Parbovo Subianto’s visit to Paris in October.
