PARIS, April 16 (Reuters) - Dassault Aviation (AVMD.PA) said on Thursday it had not been informed of any decision to eliminate its Rafale warplane from a potential major Indian arms deal and said France was seeking clarification.
An Indian defence ministry spokesman said earlier the French aircraft maker was out of the running in a tender for a $10 billion contract to supply India with 126 multi-role fighter jets because it had not met unspecified requirements.
“So far Rafale International has received no information from official Indian sources on this matter,” a Dassault spokesman said.
“French officials are inquiring with Indian authorities in order to get additional information about it,” he added.
