  • Saudi Arabia has concluded a multibillion-dollar arms supply deal with the United States

Washington: Representatives of the US Department of State and Saudi Arabia were determined with the parameters of a multi-million dollar deal that was discussed at the end of 2016. So, according to a signed cooperation proposal letter, Riyards will acquire weaponry from the American military-industrial corporation Lockheed Martin Corporation for € 13 billion. This was reported by the US State Department.

"Riyard will acquire 44 ground-based anti-missile launchers (THAAD), warheads for them and related equipment, " the State Department stated. 

It is worth noting that the discussion of the terms of the deal was accompanied by active lobbying by the US administration and telephone conversations by the American President Donald Trump with the Saudi King Salman bin Abdel Aziz Al Saud.

In addition, during his visit to Saudi Arabia, Trump agreed to invest Riyadh in the US economy at the level of 450 billion dollars (395 billion euros).

Recall, as previously reported, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the degradation of relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia will have a bad impact on the national security of the United States.
