Sales of US military equipment to foreign governments have jumped 33 percent compared to the previous year’s total.
The US foreign military sales hit 55 point 6 billion dollars in the fiscal year ending September 30. The figure represents signed letters of agreement between the United States and other countries. The White House eased restrictions on sales and encouraged US officials to take a bigger role in boosting business overseas for the American weapons industry. A report in March revealed that nearly half of US arms exports over the past five years have gone to the Middle East. Washington is criticized for the sales of arms which are being used by US allies against civilians in Yemen and elsewhere.
