OSLO, Norway: Norwegian Defense Minister Bjoern Arild Gram has said that Norway would conduct training programs for Ukrainian pilots in F-16 fighter jets, although it has not decided whether it will transfer any of its F-16 jets to Ukraine.

Meanwhile, U.S. President Joe Biden has endorsed training programs for Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighter jets and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy assured Biden that the aircraft would not be used to venture into Russian territory.

"The government backs this initiative and is considering how Norway can contribute, together with allies and partners," Gram said.
