Biden administration imposed temporary ban on arms shipments to UAE and Saudi Arabia

American information sources publish reports that the new US administration has made a "special decision" regarding the implementation of contracts in the military-technical sphere with some countries of the Persian Gulf.


Thus, The Wall Street Journal writes that the Biden administration decided to impose a supply ban weapons and military equipment in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. The ban is reportedly temporary.

The reports say that Washington is going to carry out a revision of agreements and contracts for the supply of certain types of weapons. In particular, we are talking about high-precision ammunition for Riyadh and fifth-generation F-35A fighters for the UAE Air Force. Previously, such sales were approved by the administration of the 45th US President Donald Trump.

The reason for the decision by the Biden administration to temporarily ban the supply of these weapons was the fact that the UAE had previously signed an agreement involving the purchase of Su-35 fighters from Russia. Also, the American authorities state that the United Arab Emirates is actively cooperating not only with Moscow, but also with Beijing, "which could strike a blow to US interests in the region and endanger the American military personnel in the region."

The question of a possible revision of the agreement with Saudi Arabia, as noted in the US media, may be associated with several factors. One of these is "the need to hold consultations with Israel, which expresses concern over the strengthening of the military power of a number of Gulf countries."

If the agreements with the UAE and Saudi Arabia are finally canceled by Biden, then this could affect the so-called "Trump deal", which involved the settlement of the long-term Arab-Israeli conflict.

    Biden offended the monarchy ...
    How would the Saudis again bring down the price of oil in order to finally bury the shale oil.

        I wouldn't count on it too much. Trump was also counted on at first, remember?

          And what is the benefit to us from cheap oil?
          On the contrary, the SA wanted to buy the S-400, but the United States was against it. Now this position of the United States can only spur the desire of the Arabs to diversify the supply of weapons. And with the UAE about the Su-35 can quickly grow together.
          One gets the impression that the US administration is playing along with Iran in the region ... And it may well return to the nuclear deal - even just to spite Trump.
          And this is also good for us.
          It is high time for Iran to re-equip its air force.

          And by the way, what is this information that Trump, considering himself as the former commander-in-chief of the United States, appointed a new commander of the Pacific Coast Army yesterday / the day before yesterday? The hegemon looks like the most interesting is yet to come ...

            An interesting suggestion.
            Of course, the United States will not apologize and compensate for the damage to Iran (as Iran wants it).
            But such a "bone" can be thrown.
            To resume the JCPOA.
            The Trump deal and Netanyahu's future can already be considered buried. hi

      The old intrigues of the Democrats. At any cost, they threw off the implacable Donnie, who still pushed a contract for 200 billion dollars to the Saudis of his military equipment. How did Biden stand out? Apart from the collapse of the voting system and the polarization of the population for and against, what comparable benefits did it bring to the country?
      And then I decided to pull the Saudis.

      Uncle Sam will please to be capricious smile
      Thus, pushing the Arab monarchies to Moscow and Beijing.

      The construction of the Canadian oil pipeline was lost.
      The development of American shale oil is going to cover up ...

      And most importantly !!! He does not call 404, even though you crack ... And there, after all, they already crawled on their belly and even fought, proving which of the boars is friendlier to the new boss.

      Oh something is unclean smile with the hand of Moscow ... oh unclean laughing

    They will put pressure on the Arabs, and then they will sell the planes anyway. It's a business ...

      The quoted piece is extremely dubious. The UAE signed only a "memorandum of intent" in 2017, and in 2020 they announced that they would not purchase the Su-35. There is no need to press.

    Old song. You have decided to buy some of the weapons from Russia, then you will face difficulties in supplying our weapons. American "fair" competition in action. And, supposedly, Israel's concern has nothing to do with it. When did Americans pay attention to someone's concerns?

    The UAE is laying straw. It turns out that the planes are made not only by the United States, but by Russia and China. And the Penguin is still hanging-backed that plane, they have already riveted so much and imperfections like a snowball. Maybe they are lying about imperfections? Arab port (from foreign ports) substitution in action. bully

    When did the UAE sign the contract for the supply of the Su-35 ?! There is no information on the web

    CA is never an enemy of Israel. They even fought with Saddam together. Some dregs in the article.

      "A gentleman may well give up money, for the sake of even more money" (c). In six months, the restrictions will be lifted, under "certain conditions" of course. There is a suspicion that the "conditions" will relate to hydrocarbon quotas. hi

    That's what it says. Previously, the house was owned by Trump, but now there are other owners.
