“Senator Jim Risch, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, introduced the bill at Senate hearing on President Donald Trump's "emergency" designation allowing $8bn in precision-guided weapons sales and high-technology transfers to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)," the source noted.

"I am really hoping that all of us can come together and pass a piece of legislation" that provides "a bipartisan method for re-evaluating our relationship It has headed south on us since about 2015 and unfortunately it comes at a time when Iran presents an increasing challenge to us," Risch said.
