The German Finance Minister, Theo Waigel, believes the four-nation Eurofighter is necessary both in terms of German national and a wider European interest.

He was quoted in the Die Welt newspaper as saying: "I want the Eurofighter and consider it necessary both in the national and European interest. Now it's a question of agreeing an acceptable financial model with the manufacturer DASA." Reuters - Frankfurt
