UAE suspends talks on B weapons deal with U.S.

Abu Dhabi, Dec 18 (Prensa Latina) The United Arab Emirates (UAE) suspended talks on a billion deal to purchase US-made F-35 planes, armed drones and other equipment, in a rare dispute between Washington and a key US ally in the Persian Gulf.

The decision came after onerous US restrictions issued to protect weapons from alleged Chinese intelligence efforts, Al-Mayadeen said.

The pan-Arab channel cited former British ambassador to Syria Peter Ford, who gave the reason for Abu Dhabi not to close the purchase agreement, because of demands from Washington to avoid any Israel’s decreased military superiority.

Mr. Ford said UAE is unwilling to pay a high price for F-15s as modern warfare has turned to drones.
