Aerospace Industries Association Criticizes Senate's Failure to Approve U.S.-U.K. Defense Trade Cooperation Treaty

The Financial Times newspaper reports that the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) recently sent a letter to Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Joe Biden criticizing the Senate's decision to delay consideration of the bilateral defense trade cooperation treaty between the U.S. and the U.K.

According to the story, the AIA's letter indicated that failure to approve the treaty this year "would be an unfortunate setback in ongoing efforts to shape an export control regime that will serve America's interests in the 21st century".

The leadership of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has claimed that their decision to delay approval of the U.K. and Australia bilateral defense trade cooperation treaties stemmed from their belief that they lacked the necessary time to evaluate the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls' proposed amendments to the ITAR that are necessary to put the treaties into effect.
