The United States has confirmed approval of 8.1 billion US dollars in arms transfers to Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates amid hostilities with Iran.

The equipment includes aircraft support maintenance; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; munitions; and other supplies, reported news agency Sputnik.

This comes hours after a US Senator Bob Menendez said that US President Donald Trump administration has invoked a provision in US Sales arms legislation that would allow the White House to sell arms to Suadi Arabia by bypassing Congress.
