GREECE OFFERED MILITARY EQUIPMENT



National.

The Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs offered "supplies" to the African nation of DR Congo, if they were to change their position regarding Macedonia.


From high diplomatic sources MINA news agency finds that Greece had offered the following to the DR Congo: 100 Tanks, 1,000 pieces of weaponry and several old combat planes. Most of the arms were free, and the rest were being offered at a greatly discounted rates.

Because of the new weapons contract with France, Athens is stuck with large quantities of old weapons and is trying to discard these by offering them to the less fortunate African nations in exchange for their siding in regard to the name dispute.

DR Congo refused the deal offered by Athens. Mexico was also offered military supplies, mostly naval equipment. That offer was also refused.
