Senate to Hold Hearing on U.S. Defense Trade Cooperation Treaties with the U.K. and Australia

The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations will hold a hearing on May 21, 2008 on the Defense Trade Cooperation treaties that the U.S. signed with the governments of the United Kingdom and Australia in 2007 and were submitted to the Senate for "advice and consent" (2/3 vote required for approval) prior to ratification by the parties.

The Defense Trade Cooperation treaties are intended to ease restrictions associated with the International Trade in Arms Regulations (ITAR) by creating a comprehensive framework within which most defense trade can be carried out under streamlined procedures.

So far, the only witness appearing at the hearing will be Jon C. Rood, Acting Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs.

The hearing will be held at 9:15 A.M. in room 419 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.

The full text of the U.S.-U.K. Defense Trade Cooperation treaty can be found here. The full text of the U.S.-Australia Defense Trade Cooperation treaty can be found here. The implementing arrangements for these treaties that were signed earlier this year can be found here (U.K) and here (Australia).
