  US Establishes Policy for Exports of Armed Drones
(htt://www.mlf-times.com/eco.-bus. / 20news/256/details/427797/us-establishes-
                  policy-for-e2ports-of-anned-drones)


   The US government last week
established a policy for exports of
military and commercial drones,
including armed ones, and said
it plans to work with other coun-
tries to shape global standards
for the use of the controversial
weapons systems. It could help
US companies boost sales of mili-
tary and commercial drones in an
increasingly competitive global
market. The change also follows
stern warnings by top US officials
about rapid advances in weap-
ons technology by China, Russia
and other potential foes, includ-
ing unmanned systems. China has
its own ambitious drone program
and has exported drones to at least


nine countries, including Pakistan,
Egypt and the United Arab Emir-
ates, while it is also in talks with
Saudi Arabia and Algeria for sales,
according to Chinese state media.
   The new policy will make it
easier for America's closest allies
to buy armed drones, while main-
taining stringent controls on the
overall technology, US officials
said. Under the policy, buyers of
military drones will have to agree
to strict conditions, including ad-
herence to international law, and a
ban on using the drones for unlaw-
ful surveillance or to crack down
on their domestic populations.
