US moving ahead with $1bn arms sale to Morocco: Report | Al Jazeera

The Trump administration is moving ahead with a $1bn weapons sale to Morocco, Reuters News Agency reported on Friday, a day after the United States announced that Morocco had agreed to normalise diplomatic ties with Israel.

Citing unnamed sources familiar with the deal, Reuters said the Trump administration sent a notification to Congress about the proposed arms sale.

The proposal includes four US-made drones, as well as precision-guided munitions, the sources said.

Reuters first reported on the arms deal on Thursday after US President Donald Trump hailed the normalisation agreement between Morocco and Israel.

That agreement, which was condemned by Palestinian leaders, was reached after Washington recognised Morocco’s claim to the disputed territory of Western Sahara.
