Biden’s government has suspended arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, a source said Tuesday, CNN reported.
The Biden administration is conducting a more extensive review of the multi billion dollar agreement reached during Trump’s administration, the report said. US Secretary of state Abraham Lincoln confirmed at a news conference a few days ago that the current government is reviewing the pending arms sales issue, just as the typical practice at the beginning of the new government. However, he did not mention any specific countries.
Democrats in the US support this. U.S. Senator Chris Murphy tweeted that this is the right move. “The weapons we sell to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are used to kill schoolchildren and fuel a dangerous arms race in the Middle East. ”
