The US House of Representatives on Wednesday sided with the Senate in passing three resolutions to ban sales of precision-guided munitions and other weaponry and technology to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan.

The majority of lawmakers approved three resolutions aimed at blocking exports of defense weapons and services to Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Jordan and some European nations without congressional approval.The resolutions cover only three of the 22 deals announced by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo back in May and focus specifically on the sale of precision-guided munitions like Raytheon’s Paveway bombs, the main source of concern for lawmakers. Four Republicans broke ranks to vote for the motions, while there were no detractors among Democrats joined by one Independent. (RT)
