According to the publication's sources, Biden's team "is conducting estimates of arms supply transactions worth billions of dollars" that were approved during Donald Trump's presidency. In particular, agreements on the sale of precision-guided munitions to Saudi Arabia and F-35 fighters to the UAE are being considered at this point.
Despite the pause, it is believed that many of the above-mentioned transactions are likely to proceed forward eventually.
As we reported earlier, Biden officially accepted Russia's offer on the extension of the Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (New START).
It is worth noting that the document restricts the number of nuclear arms deployed by Washington and Moscow by 1,550.
Nevertheless, the incumbent U.S. president also offers both sides to ‘consider the talks on a new series of arms control measures.’
