Biden Administration Approves Large-Scale Military Sales to Gulf States

(JNS) The Biden administration authorized two large-scale defense sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, to help defend against threats from Iran, the Associated Press reported.

The more than $5 billion in missile defense and related sales come after U.S. President Joe Biden’s trip to the Middle East last month, which included meetings with a number of regional officials and leaders in Saudi Arabia.

The new sales include $3 billion for Patriot anti-missile missiles for Saudi Arabia to defend against Houthi missile attacks, and $2.2 billion for high-altitude missile defense THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missiles for the UAE.
