UK confirms to buy missile defence of $700 million from US

Date:

LONDON- On Thursday, the U.S. State Department said it supported the probable sale of a $700 million missile defence system to the United Kingdom.

The authorization comes amid a surge in demands for European countries to buy more U.S.-produced weaponry as the Russian invasion of Ukraine pushes an increasingly insecure security perspective.

The British government, which likely started arranging the deal long before the invasion of Ukraine three weeks ago, seeks to buy ballistic missiles, defence radar and two command and control battle management and communications systems made by Lockheed Martin Corp.

The State Department noted the sale would support U.S. foreign policy goals “by improving the security of a NATO ally that is a force for political stability and economic progress in Europe.”
