Iraq is trying to recover a 651 million euro (895 million dollar) payment from France for a consignment of Mirage F1 fighter planes that were never delivered, the cabinet’s official spokesman said.

“A ministerial committee was recently formed to negotiate with the relevant French parties the recovery of 651 million Euros paid in advance under the contract to buy Mirage F1 aircraft that the manufacturers never delivered,” Ali al-Dabbagh said in a statement received by Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

“The cabinet agreed to add a representative of the Iraqi president to the committee formed to negotiate with the French” he added.
