US, Is­rael in record mil­i­tary deal

The Myanmar Times - - World -

The United States an­nounced it had reached a record US$38 bil­lion 10-year mil­i­tary aid deal with Is­rael, de­spite dis­agree­ment over the Mid­dle East peace process. The State De­part­ment said the pact “con­sti­tutes the sin­gle largest pledge of bi­lat­eral mil­i­tary as­sis­tance in US history”. The deal comes de­spite frus­tra­tion within Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s ad­min­is­tra­tion at Is­rael’s pol­icy of build­ing set­tler homes on oc­cu­pied Pales­tinian ter­ri­tory. – AFP
