Obama weighs offering Saudi Arabia weapons provided only to Israel

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The Obama administration is quietly pushing Sunni Arab allies in the Persian Gulf to create an advanced missile defense system, and is preparing to ramp up sophisticated weapons sales to Saudi Arabia in an effort to ease regional fears over a potential nuclear deal with Iran, the Washington Times reported.

With Secretary of State John F. Kerry set to visit Saudi Arabia Wednesday and Thursday, officials privately say the administration is weighing whether to offer Riyadh -- already a major buyer of American and European weaponry -- GBU-28 bunker buster bombs Washington has so far only been willing to provide to Israel.

The discussions are taking place under a cloak of secrecy. The officials who spoke with The Washington Times did so on condition of anonymity only, and the Saudi Embassy declined to comment. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/may/5/obama-weighs-offering-saudi-arabia-weapons-provide/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
