PARIS (AP) - France has agreed to sell 30 Caracal military helicopters to Kuwait as part of the countries’ strategic partnership.

France defense ministry said in a statement that Tuesday’s deal is worth more than 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion).

France and Kuwait signed major defense deals in October last year.

French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said “with this decision, Kuwait further strengthens the strategic partnership that has been linking our two countries over several decades as we operate side by side in the fight against Daesh (the Islamic State group) in Iraq and Syria. “
