Washington may soon announce plans for a large sale of precision-guided bombs to the United Arab Emirates, according to US reports, as tensions mounted with Iran over its nuclear programme.

The Pentagon is considering a significant sale of Joint Direct Attack Munitions made by Boeing, adding to other recent arms deals with the UAE. Those included the sale of 500 Hellfire air-to-surface missiles about which the US Congress was notified in September.

The sale of Boeing-built “bunker-buster” bombs and other munitions to UAE, a key Gulf ally of Washington, is part of an ongoing US effort to build a regional coalition to counter Iran.

No comment on the reports was immediately available from the Pentagon’s press office or the Defence Security Cooperation Agency, which oversees foreign arms sales.
