Joe Biden gives a big blow to Saudi Arabia, ban on F-35 and arms sales
The new US President Joe Biden has banned the sale of arms worth billions of dollars, particularly to Donald Trump, giving a big blow to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The US has announced that it is conducting a comprehensive review of Trump's arms deals. At the same time, the new US Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed this and said that this is a symbolic step for the new administration. These agreements also include a deal with the UAE for America's deadliest F-35 fighter jet.

The US Secretary of State said that the pending arms agreement is under review and is symbolic for the beginning of the new administration. He said that the new administration would ensure that whatever is being considered should carry forward our strategic goals and foreign policy. Blinken did not say to which country he made the statement. After Trump's deal with the billion-dollar arms deal, Biden's review of them is now considered a sign of major change in US policies.

Earlier, the Wall Street Journal stated in its report that the Biden administration has banned Saudi Arabia from providing extremely lethal weapons and UAE F-35 aircraft. The US has taken this step at a time when Biden promised a week ago that he would review US relations with Saudi Arabia. Since then, Biden has been reviewing several of Trump's decisions since he took office.

Earlier, Trump strengthened his ties with Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE to create maximum pressure on Iran. The United States had approved an arms deal worth over 1 lakh 73 thousand crore rupees to the United Arab Emirates. Through the deal, the US was to be given to the UAE for its fighter aircraft F-35 and MQ-9 Reaper drones. The then US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had said that in this deal worth more than $ 23 billion, the United Arab Emirates will be given several advanced weapons systems. Trump also made a big deal to give deadly weapons to Saudi Arabia.
