Joe Biden unlocks Trump arms deal to UAE

28

The United States will supply the United Arab Emirates with weapons and equipment worth $ 23 billion. Joe Biden nevertheless unlocked the deal made under Donald Trump. This is reported by the American press.


Joe Biden's new administration has decided to supply the UAE and Saudi Arabia with arms worth $ 23 billion, although, according to media reports, "it is still in doubt", holding "consultations" with representatives of these states. The White House demands that the Arabs use the American weapon only with "respect for human rights" and international laws of the conduct of armed conflicts.

If the deal is implemented, and it will be implemented, who would doubt it, when that kind of money is at stake, the UAE will receive 50 F-35 fighters, 18 MQ-9B attack drones, and Saudi Arabia - other "advanced American weapons." It is noted that deliveries will begin after 2025.

Recall that the Donald Trump administration managed to sign an agreement on the supply of arms to the UAE an hour before the inauguration of Joe Biden, but the new president vetoed the deal "pending a full investigation." Apparently, a preliminary decision to resume the sale has already been made, Washington intends to "break down a little more", filling its own price, after which everything will be resolved and everyone will be satisfied, well, except for Israel, which would not want to significantly strengthen anyone in the Middle East , be he even three times neutral towards the Israelis.

Earlier, it was the position of Tel Aviv that prevented Washington from supplying fifth-generation fighters to the Arabs, but the United States managed to come to an agreement with Israel, "coordinating" the sale of aircraft to the UAE, especially since the Arabs had established diplomatic relations with Israel.

        Strictly the opposite - I did not follow these elections, the past paid both sides:
        Trump - Adelson (Bibi's friend)
        Clintonshe - Tel Aviv businessman Saban

      It depends on which one. He was more interested in political compensation. It just didn't help.

        Big, and even more so huge, they do not need, but the small one from which the whole big dances, already from the middle of the 19th century, it has completely sat down, having managed to destroy a bunch of empires.

      When he imposed a "veto" there was no one to prompt. Zhenya Psaki was still on maternity leave at that time.

    Wow ... how could such a beautiful, strong and necessary for everyone concept of "respect for human rights" so defile actions under this "pseudo slogan" ...

    Democrats - $ 23 billion, even the wording is superfluous here, you have to sell ...

    Grandpa Joe hurried, got it in the ears and quickly canceled the "veto", otherwise Kamala Harris would have canceled it.

    So is there a deal with the Saudis or the UAE? The UAE's capital is not Riyadh, but Dubai ..

      There, the American media confused themselves, the deal provides for the supply of F-35 and UAVs to the UAE, and precision munitions - to the Saudis, and they are one size fits all - Riyadh and that's it. In their opinion, the deal is, in fact, one and the United States will receive money at once and for everything. what is there and to whom exactly, let the Pentagon understand hi

    What is the title with a strange error. What does the capital of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have to do with it?

    And if in the case ... the US President is not authorized to oppose the local military-industrial complex. Commercials since the mid 50s of the last century.

    It was immediately clear that the deal would be unfrozen. This is just such a political regulation: signed, but still unfulfilled obligations, each new administration slows down and checks for compliance with its political paradigm.
    And Israel .. Technique is a VERY important thing, but it is potential. Just as important - if not more - are the people at the helm. And with regard to combat experience and flying skills, the Arabs are up to the Israelis, as to Mars on the wings of Daedalus.
    I doubt that militarily this deal is straining them.
