Biden admin to resupply missile defense systems to Saudi Arabia and UAE

The Pentagon announced on Tuesday that the US State Department had approved the potential sales of Patriot missile interceptors to Saudi Arabia and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile interceptors to the United Arab Emirates in separate deals costing up to $5.3 billion.

Only a few weeks had passed since President Joe Biden’s visit to the area in July when the potential deals, which would resupply crucial missile defense systems for the two nations, were announced.

As inflation reaches 40-year highs and threatens to cut fuel costs, Biden had hoped to achieve an oil production agreement.

Despite receiving the State Department’s approval, the contracts have not yet been signed and finalized. Further negotiations are still ongoing. BKM/ Expat Media
