US To Allow Export Of Armed Military Drone

The US is amending its regulations with regards to the sale of weapons. All this in an attempt to export its armed military drones to some of its allies as well as friendlier nations.

The state department said that the new policies, which are being implemented by the Obama administration, would make it possible for some foreign governments who would have meet the requirements that have been set – and pledge not to use them illegally to buy the drones.

Countries which will be receiving these drones which have in the recent past played a very crucial role in the war against terror will be required to sign end user statements that basically will certify that the country purchasing the drones will not use them for purposes of surveillance unlawfully or against the will of their domestic population. In addition to those rules the statement also requires the countries which are receiving the drones to ensure that they only use them in military operations which have been internationally sectioned such as self defense.

Before making any sale pledges of country which are purchasing the drones will be carefully monitored for compliance and to add to that each sale will undergo intense review individually, the department said in a statement.

In the past the sale of drones by the US had been governed by regulations, which stated that the requests made by a country to purchase drones would be denied in highly unusual circumstances.

Drones which have a range of 186 miles that is basically 300 kilometers and have the ability to carry a payload that is 1,100 pounds will still be subjected to previous regulations.
