KONGSBERG, Norway (Reuters) – Lockheed Martin <LMT.N> could sell its F-35 fighter jets to Germany if Washington and Berlin agree to a deal, the U.S. defence contractor’s chief executive told Reuters on Thursday. “I saw in the media that there is an interest in the F-35, and we stand ready so support the U.S. government on their interactions with the German government on their assessment of the F-35,” Marillyn Hewson told Reuters on a visit to Norway. “I do think it would be the best choice for them,” she added. Lockheed also hopes to increase its sales of the F-35 to South Korea, Hewson said.
