This was announced after a delegation from Israel visited Croatia on Thursday and told the country's officials that they failed to secure US licenses for the sale of the combat aircraft in question.
Croatia previously made an agreement with Israel on the purchase of aircraft worth about USD 450 million.
Israel intended to sell the US-manufactured aircraft together with modifications, but the US objected to this.
