The Biden administration will keep a Trump policy that boosted armed drone exports, Reuters reported. Morocco is one of the countries that will benefit from this policy.

«Keeping the policy holds the door open for hundreds of millions and eventually billions of dollars in U.S. sales to governments in Taiwan, India, Morocco, and the United Arab Emirates that in the past have been prohibited from buying them», the same source added.

«Members of Congress are holding up the sale of four drones to Morocco», Reuters explained.

For the record, the four «MQ-9B SeaGuardian drones made by General Atomics have a range of 6,000 nautical miles (11,100 km) and could survey huge swaths of sea and desert».
