The United States is reviewing weapons sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) authorized by former President Donald Trump, the Secretary of State Antony Blinken said.

Iran Press/America: In his first press briefing on Wednesday, Blinken said the review aims to make sure that what is being considered as something that advances our strategic objectives and advances our foreign policy.

The Wall Street Journal first reported on Wednesday that the Biden administration has imposed a temporary freeze on billions of dollars in weapons sales to the two countries, including the sale of precision-guided munitions to Saudi Arabia and F-35 fighters to the UAE.

The move comes one week after Biden, who has promised to reassess Washington’s relationship with Riyadh, was inaugurated. Since taking office, he has signed a string of executive actions to review or reverse some of Trump’s key policies.
