USA intel shows Saudi boosts missile program with help from China

USA intel shows Saudi boosts missile program with help from China

According to the sources, "the Trump administration did not initially disclose its knowledge of this classified development to key members of Congress", says CNN.

The classified information indicates that apart from expansion in the missile infrastructure, Saudi Arabia has also purchased technology from China.

Satellite images of a Saudi military base published in January by The Washington Post indicated that Riyadh was testing and possibly manufacturing ballistic missiles.

The authorizations are among seven granted by Trump since 2017, as Saudi Arabia has been working toward developing its first two nuclear reactors, according to Kaine. At present, Riyadh is concerned about the development of ballistic and cruise missiles in Iran, particularly given that Riyadh suspects the Iranian nuclear program is geared toward developing a nuclear warhead.

Saudi Arabia called Arab, Gulf and Muslim summits last week to discuss tensions between the United States and Iran in the region.

It was the 53 minute of an unspectacular FA Cup tie between Swansea and Brentford, when Daniel James fired up the after-burners. He went home on Thursday but he's fine, he's in a good place. "But football-wise, he's trained well and I'm really happy".

While Saudi Arabia is the US's top arms buyer, it is barred from purchasing ballistic missiles from Washington under a 1987 regulation that prevents the sale of rockets capable of carrying weapons of mass destruction.

The US had maintained its relationship with the Saudi leadership despite its role in the war in Yemen and the widely popular murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang told a press conference in Beijing on Thursday that this cooperation did not violate global law.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman (seen in file photo) has said Saudi would immediately seek a nuclear weapon if Iran obtained one. "Our cooperation is not in violation of worldwide law and does not involve WMDs".

"Saudi Arabia treats us like the junior partner in this relationship, chopping up USA residents and torturing others, all the while demanding we remain silent and sell them more weapons", Murphy said. He allegedly was assassinated at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018 by agents of the Saudi government. Tehran insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
