Lloyd Austin, a retired four-star US Army General, was confirmed by the US Senate last Friday (22/1/21) as the new Secretary of Defense.
There is talk that Austin has close ties with the military and diplomatic decision-makers in the Saudi ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs, and that he supports Saudi Arabia’s procurement of the best types of US-made weapons.
Tactical Report has prepared a 476-word report to shed more light on Austin’s relations with Saudi decision-makers and the Saudi views on his appointment as US Defense Secretary.
