Pentagon Inked $8.5 Billion in Fiscal-1998 Arms-Export Deals
http://www.kingpublishing.com/indx-df.html


PENTAGON INKED $8.5 BILLION IN FISCAL-1998 ARMS-EXPORT DEALS
by David Ruppe
Defense Week
Monday, November 16, 1998

Despite the current world economic crisis, the Pentagon managed to sign a
total of $8.5 billion in new arms deals with just over 100 countries in
fiscal 1998, the bulk of it with close U.S. allies in the Middle East and
East Asia.

The total value was consistent with that of fiscal 1997, $8.8 billion,
but far lower than the $13 billion to $31 billion annual totals signed
earlier in the decade when world defense spending was up.

The three top buyers of U.S. defense equipment in the last fiscal year
were Saudi Arabia with $2.1 billion, Egypt with $949 million, and Israel
with $628 million. Other big spenders in the Middle East were Bahrain
with $286 million, Kuwait with $92 million and the United Arab Emirates
with $70 million. Saudi Arabia additionally purchased $187 million in
U.S. military construction.

The leading buyers in East Asia were Taiwan with $441 million, Japan with
$348 million, South Korea with $267 million, Australia with $216 million,
and Singapore with $150 million.

“I don't see too many surprises in those numbers at all,” said Tom
Cardamone, an analyst with the Council for a Livable World Education
Fund, a private non-profit group which monitors weapons trading. “The
largest recipients
are traditional U.S. allies and it appears that the good customers keep
coming back for more.”

The Pentagon exports defense equipment through its Foreign Military Sales
program. It can take up to three years after a deal is signed before the
country receives its equipment, Pentagon officials say. The U.S. also
exports arms licensed through the State Department’s Direct Commercial
Sales program. Those exports were not included in the Pentagon totals.

Of the total equipment sold, $3.7 billion was army equipment, $2.5
billion was air force and $2.0 billion was navy. About $630 million worth
of the Pentagon total was listed as classified, and not attributed to any
specific
country.

Tense regional rivals Greece and Turkey signed $531 million and $241
million worth of deals, respectively. Other major buyers in Europe
included the Netherlands with $193 million, Germany with $186 million,
the United Kingdom with $96 million and Italy with $95 million. Canada
purchased $97 million worth.

Pentagon sales to Latin America and Central European countries, though
viewed by some as emerging markets, remained low. NATO alliance invitees
Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic purchased only $9.6 million, $5.6
million and $5.9 million, respectively, so far disappointing predictions
of an arms rush to Central Europe associated with NATO expansion to the
region. Neither Poland or Hungary has yet decided to purchase squadrons
of advanced Western fighter aircraft they have been considering for
several years.

Despite President Clinton’s August 1997 decision to begin allowing
high-tech U.S. equipment to Latin America, Latin countries continued to
sign for only a small amount of U.S. arms as compared to other regions of
the world. The
largest buyer of U.S. equipment was Brazil with $25 million. No other
Latin American country purchased more than $11 million worth of arms in
fiscal 1998. Those low numbers, Cardamone, said, were “induced by arms
control
and economic hardship.”

Citing economic concerns related to the Asian financial crisis, Chile
announced last June it would postpone a decision to purchase as many as
24 new fighter aircraft. It signed only $1.4 million in fiscal 1998.
