Which non-US users of the F-16 do or don’t have the AIM-9X and for those which don’t, are there any alternatives for the 9X instead?

Something like this that likely do not:

Chile
Egypt
Iraq
Greece
Pakistan
Portugal
Thailand
Venezuela


Alternates are:

Python 4/5
AIM-2000 (Iris T)

South Korea also didn't operate the AIM-9X for the F-16.
Although they have it for the F-15K and F-35A but not for the F-16s.

But they will bring the AIM-9X to the KF-16 when they finished upgrade to the Block 72 standard.
It is still unknown the F-16 Block 32 of ROKAF can operate the AIM-9X after upgrade.

Taiwan/Singapore had requested them under the current upgrades so cannot say the status.

Israel look to have procured some but again cannot say what the use is.
