The CNN news agency said that the US government has received intelligence that Saudi Arabia has significantly upgraded its ballistic missile program with Chinese support. This new development has threatened American decades-long efforts to limit ballistic missile dissemination in the Middle East.
Intelligence information indicates that Saudi Arabia has expanded both its infrastructure and missile technology through recent transactions with China. The Trump administration initially did not disclose these secret developments to key members of Congress, causing many Democrats to be angry when they discovered relevant information from channels outside the government. MPs said the government had deliberately ignored that information during meetings.
