February 6 According to Reuters, the U.S. Department of Defense said on the 5th local time that the U.S. State Department had approved Biden’s first potential foreign arms sales project.
The approved project includes NATO-oriented communication equipment and missiles for Chile, worth up to $150 million.
This is also the first potential military sales project announced to the outside world since President Biden took office.
However, since the entire approval process takes several months, the project was established under the Trump administration.
Since taking office, the Biden administration has temporarily suspended some arms items for sale to allies in the United States, such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, to allow them to be reviewed, although this has been approved by the Trump administration.
