 Japanese media: the Trump administration promotes military UAV exports to deal with China


[World Wide Web] Japanese economic news 23 reported in April that the Trump administration of the United States is promoting exports of defense equipment such as military UAVs. In addition to confronting China, Trump also focused on the mid-term elections in the autumn, hoping to increase employment. However, if the US attaches importance to the interests of the military needs industry, there will be a risk of abuse and proliferation of weapons. Navarro, the head of the US trade and manufacturing policy office, said in April 19th that China and other countries are speeding up the sale of UAVs, showing the idea of confronting China. The view is that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and other allies in the United States are purchasing cheap Chinese equipment. The report said that the US government will relax restrictions and allow us businesses to directly negotiate with foreign governments about the export of military UAVs. At present, US and foreign governments UAVs orders need to be carried out by the US government. Export approval usually takes several years. In view of this, the United States will significantly shorten the time of examination and approval in the future. In addition, the United States will also reduce strict censorship, and the details of the weapons export promotion policy, including conventional weapons, will be finalized in the next 60 days. According to British media reports, the United States has previously ruled that the export of military UAVs to the countries of the United Kingdom is limited to only 3 countries in the UK, France and Italy. Trump said, as soon as the Allies request, they can get equipment from the United States immediately. Compared with the Obama administration, which is cautious about the export of advanced military equipment, the Trump administration has clearly changed its policy. The relaxation of defense equipment export restrictions coincides with Trumps US priority policy, the report said. The expansion of equipment exports is expected to bring about a virtuous cycle of increasing job opportunities and expanding investment. The US Republican Party has been closely associated with the Quartermaster industry, and seems to want support from the munitions industry in the mid-term elections. Senior officials of the US government also stressed that the export of advanced weapons helps reduce the number of US troops stationed overseas. On the other hand, with the US turning to arms exports, the risk of abusing weapons will also increase.
