BRASILIA, Sept 8, 2009 (Reuters) - Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva authorized final negotiations to acquire 36 Rafale fighter jets made by France's Dassault Aviation (AVMD.PA), a Brazilian presidential source said on Monday. The announcement coincides with a visit of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who participated in Brazil's Independence Day celebrations on Monday.
The other two finalists in the tender to supply next-generation fighter jets worth as much as $3 billion were Boeing Co (BA.N) and Saab AB (SAABb.ST).
