Trump says F-35 fighter sale to UAE “under review”

US President Donald Trump told a White House news conference on Wednesday that the United Arab Emirate had expressed interest in buying “quite a few” F-35 stealth fighters and such a sale was “under review” following the new dynamic in Israel-UAE relations. ”They have the money,” Trump noted. PM Binyamin Netanyahu earlier denied that the diplomatic accord with the UAE included any clause for this sale. In his statement, he stressed that the US made it clear that it will always guarantee the Israeli military’s qualitative edge in the region.
