September 17, 1985

The State Department said it has dropped plans to sell additional F-15 jet fighters to Saudi Arabia in the wake of a major arms deal between Britain and the Saudis. Department spokesman Charles Redman also said the Saudi decision to buy 48 British Tornado fighters and 30 Hawk trainers is not expected to significantly affect the Mideast arms balance. Meanwhile, a senior Administration official carefully avoided denying published reports that the Saudis went ahead with the British deal after President Reagan assured them he would not object.
