US Secretary of State Pompeo defends Saudi arms sales after damning watchdog report

 WASHINGTON:US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has defended Washington’s arms sales to Saudi Arabia after a watchdog report said the State Department failed to “fully assess” the risk of civilian deaths in war-torn Yemen.


Pompeo said on Wednesday that his department “did everything by the book” in regards to arms sales to Riyadh in May 2019.


“I am proud of the work that my team did. We got a really good outcome. We prevented the loss of lives,” he claimed.


A US State Department watchdog has found that risks of civilian casualties were not adequately assessed by the department when it approved arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the two main aggressor countries in a war on Yemen.
