U.S., Saudi Arabia: Let’s make a (massive ongoing weapons) deal!
million the size of the weapons contract the U.S. plans to sign with the Saudi government
years the length of said contract; the U.S. is signing it to help protect its security and economic interests source
Will Congress object to the deal? If Congress has any issues with the deal (which includes upgrading older equipment, along with new F-15s and helicopters) they have 30 days to raise them. A senate panel has already been given the tip-off.
