Netanyahu on proposed sale of F-35s to UAE: ‘All of us stand against a common threat’

Prime Minister Netanyahu is asked at a press conference about the Trump administration’s plan to sell F-35s stealth fighters to the United Arab Emirates after the White House informed Congress of the planned sale.

“All of us stand against a common threat and we understand this well,” Netanyahu says.

He touts the agreement signed last week, reiterating the US commitment to guaranteeing Israel’s military superiority in the region. Following the agreement, Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz said they would not oppose the proposed sale to UAE, after previously vowing to oppose it.
