President Trump’s normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates has continued to produce results.

On Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would not oppose the sale of “certain weapons systems” to the UAE. This is likely referring to the F-35 fighter planes Abu Dhabi has been seeking for several years.

The announcement came shortly after Defense Minister Benny Gantz and U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper signed an agreement allowing Israel to acquire advanced weapons and upgrade its military.

However, the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations and House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committees do have the right to review and block such sales.
