Washington, D.C. – Today, Representative Gregory W. Meeks issued the following statement regarding the Biden administration’s decision to proceed with weapons sales to the UAE, lifting its pause on the previous administration’s agreements:

“I and many other House Members remain concerned about the proposed sale of $23 billion in arms to the UAE. I still have many questions about any decision by the Biden Administration to go forward with the Trump Administration’s proposed transfers of F-35s, armed UAVs, munitions and other weapons. Fortunately, none of these transfers would occur any time soon, so there will be ample time for Congress to review whether these transfers should go forward and what restrictions and conditions would be imposed.”
