High-tech U.S. bombs to be built in Saudi Arabia under an arms deal: NYT

NEW YORK, Jun 08 (APP):The Trump administration has permitted the construction of US high-tech bomb and missile parts in Saudi Arabia, giving Riyadh unprecedented access to a sensitive weapons technology, The New York Times reported Saturday.

The newspaper said in a dispatch that the White House allowed Raytheon, a US military defence contractor, to β€œteam up” with the Saudis to build and assemble components of Paveway smart bombs in the kingdom.
