The Biden administration has frozen U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia and is examining sales to the United Arab Emirates, including the sale of Lockheed Martin F-35 jets, which were approved by the Trump administration as part of UAE’s normalization deal with Israel last year. The Biden administration has vowed to end U.S. support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen.

Minnesota Congressmember Ilhan Omar tweeted, “Good. This is an important first step in ending our material support for war globally, and the genocide in Yemen in particular. I encourage the Biden administration to continue down this path. Next step: an end to ALL arms sales to countries that violate human rights.”
