/tass/. Details on the issue of training Ukrainian pilots to control F-16 fighters will be worked out in the coming weeks. This was announced on Friday on Twitter by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

"Together with colleagues from the UK, Denmark and Belgium, we welcome reports that the US is ready to approve the training of Ukrainian pilots to control F-16 fighters," he wrote. - Details will be worked out in the coming weeks. Ukraine can count on the unconditional support of the Netherlands and international partners."

Prior to that, Rutte reported that within the framework of the international coalition, the issue of transferring fighters to Ukraine is being discussed. The Netherlands has several dozen F-16s, which are gradually being replaced by more modern F-35s.
