Moldova to Sell 6 MiGs

CHISINAU, Moldova -- Moldova plans to sell its six remaining MiG-29 fighter jets to an unidentified buyer after selling the bulk of its fleet to the United States, Prime Minister Ion Ciubuk said Thursday.


"We will get rid of this scrap,'' he said of the aircraft now undergoing repairs in Belarus.


Ciubuk refused to name the buyer or give the sale price.


Earlier this month, the United States announced it had bought 21 MiG-29s from Moldova in order to keep them out of Iran's hands.
