Trump said the specific kind of troop to be sent to the Middle East would depend on the economic returns.
We are sending soldiers and other supplies to the Middle East to help Saudi Arabia... I ask Saudi Arabia to agree to pay for everything we do. Not only Saudi Arabia, but also other countries... Now Saudi Arabia has agreed to pay for everything we do, and we are very satisfied with that.
U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper has said the United States intends to send 3,000 additional U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia at the request of the Crown Prince.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Mark Millie, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Esper said he had talked to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, who asked him for additional assistance to ensure regional security. Espel urged allies, especially European allies, to join the United States.
According to the U.S. Department of Defense, in addition to additional soldiers, the United States will send two fighter fleets, two Patriot missile systems and a Sadd defense system.
The U.S. Department of Defense also mentioned that 14,000 more people have been deployed to the region within the framework of security investments in the region. At the end of September, the United States announced that it would send 200 soldiers to Saudi Arabia.
Iran rejected the news that the United States accused Iran of being the real culprit behind the September 14 attack on two oil installations belonging to Saudi Arabia and the United States, which later claimed responsibility for the attack. The attack halved Amys oil production and caused price shocks in the oil market. Afterwards, the Saudi authorities announced that production had returned to normal.
According to tanker company news, an Iranian tanker was suspected of being attacked by two missiles near the Saudi coast on the 11th, the first attack on an Iranian subordinate ship since the attack of Amy Oil Company.
