The UAE’s abstention from voting against the U.S-backed resolution to condemn Russia after invading Ukraine in the UN Security Council is reported to have negatively affected the F-35 deal talks with the U.S.A.
However, talks regarding the deal are expected to be reactivated in the upcoming stage.
U.S. President Joe Biden is reported to be planning to discuss facilitating the sale of F-35 fighters to GCC countries during the GCC+3 Summit in Jeddah.
On the other hand, Abu Dhabi is said to be dealing with the F-35 file in a new manner.
Tactical Report has prepared a 363-word report to shed more light on the Emirati and U.S. views on the matter.
