Trump invokes emergency provision to OK Saudi, UAE arms sales


middle east breaking news

(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump used emergency authority to approve nearly two dozen arms sales to Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and other countries, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Congress on Friday.

Congressional aides told The Washington Post the deals are worth about $8 billion and include the sale of mortar bombs, missiles, drones, repair and maintenance services, and precision-guided munitions.

Pompeo notified members of Congress, including the Senate foreign relations committee, about Trump's decision to invoke the emergency authorization under the Arms Export Control Act, which typically requires congressional review. The administration cited malign behavior by Iran as its reasoning for the arms sales. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
