The Hollywood dilemma.. The calculations of American cinema towards China
Tumblr media
In the extreme southwest of the United States is Los Angeles, the capital of the world's most important visual creativity that controls the film and television industry, meeting the world's most important artists, writers, filmmakers, actors and dancers in what is known as Hollywood.   Historically, to a large extent, the universality of any actors or directors from any country in the world has been recognized only by passing through the Hollywood film portal, but this reality is changing in the face of what China is doing doubly, both by supporting the domestic film industry within it, and by influencing the American film industry itself.   In the late 1990s, when China's box office was still small, Hollywood produced films that angered the Communist Party, such as" seven years in Tibet "about the life of the Dalai Lama, the leader of the Tibetan region, and Richard Gere's" the Red Corner " in which he criticized China's legal system, but what was allowed 10 years ago is no longer tolerated.   The coronavirus pandemic has dealt a major blow to Hollywood, and US movie studios are looking to foreign theaters in their recovery efforts.   Hard-to-counter Chinese potential The presence of Hollywood within China, whether through what is filmed within Chinese territory or what deals with Chinese affairs, means that the Communist Party's influence on American filmmaking is increasingly accepted. The Chinese government selects films that can be shown in theaters within China annually, so filmmakers have to think about how to attract Chinese viewers on the one hand, and on the other hand not to approach the Chinese state taboo.   Unlike the United States, China does not have a rating system for films, so the government relies on its censors to block content that it deems offensive to the public, to Chinese culture and to the Chinese ruling system, and that extends beyond sex scenes, excessive violence or utterances, to political affairs and how Chinese society is portrayed and exposed to it.   China in the cinema of yesterday and today Chinese citizens have been allowed to watch American films on a large commercial scale since 1994 within Chinese theaters, and the Chinese market was then small. The Fugitive-the first American film to be shown in cinemas there - grossed only 3 3 million, while US film profits have jumped in recent years as a result of allowing it to be screened inside China to hundreds of millions of dollars.   In 2005, China had only 4,000 theaters, slightly more than Britain had at that time. Last year, the number of Chinese theaters reached 70,000, equal to that of America and Europe combined, according to data from Omdia, a specialist art research firm. Chinese box office revenues in 2019 totaled 8.6 billion, surpassed only by US box office revenues of just over 11 billion in the same year.   Since the early 21st century, U.S. studios have made more profit from watching their films outside the United States, with nearly two-thirds of their broadcast revenues abroad, and China is the most important overseas market for American films around the world. At the same time I don't enjoy Hollywood within China freedoms they enjoy in the rest of the world. Made in Hollywood A 94-page report entitled "Made in Hollywood-censored in Beijing" by the International Freedom of expression rights organization, Pen America, states that major Hollywood players are increasingly making decisions about their films "to avoid antagonizing Chinese officials who decide whether or not their films are allowed into the booming Chinese market."   The organization said in its report, "in some cases, invited filmmakers or directors directly regulators Chinese government for the thoughts of film scenarios, and receive advice on how to avoid tripping distance control". The report concluded that to appease investors and the Chinese Communist Party "has become an important means of doing business in Hollywood".   Chinese censors could change the script for the film and propose other modifications to allow the film to be screened later in China. China expands its triple bans (3T-3Ts) For many years the Chinese government has imposed extensive restrictions on the film industry inside and outside China so that 3 issues each beginning with a T are ignored, from here they are called the Three t, referring to Tibet, Taiwan and Tiananmen.   Many Chinese do not know what happened in 1989 when Chinese tanks crushed a peaceful student-led demonstration in the famous Tiananmen Square, killing thousands of demonstrators.   China does not want Taiwan's name to be mentioned or any film made there, and the Chinese government does not accept any mention of the fact that Taiwan is a separate island, although technically it is still part of China.   As for the territory of Tibet, China does not accept any reference to the suffering of the inhabitants of the self-governing territory, nor does it accept the existence of a photograph or a reference to the Tibetan leader, the Dalai Lama.   In the last two years, the list of Chinese prohibitions has expanded to include western Chinese Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang, and Hong Kong pro-democracy demonstrators on their island.   Hollywood is not expected to make films about these issues for fear of angering the Chinese government.   Earning the affection of the Chinese viewer The film is a Chinese folklore story that glorifies the historical Chinese state, in which Chinese good triumphs over other evil. The film's scenes were shot between China and New Zealand, and was mostly starring Chinese actors. Many observers saw Mulan's film as a step to get closer and win the affection of viewers and officials in China.   The film sparked an uproar and embarrassment for Hollywood after one of the film's female protagonists, Yifei Liu, praised Chinese security forces following the violent crackdown on peaceful pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong.   #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article

How did photography turn into a controversial art?
Tumblr media
Since the invention of photography and the capture of the first photo was perceived as a craft technique that could not compete with works of art, because it did not care about imagination. For a long time the concept of photography as a documentary mechanical medium remained nothing more. The controversy over the omnipresence of photography continued, arguing that the camera mimics only what is in front of it, that is, the image is a simple and impersonal reproduction of reality, and therefore cannot be considered art.   When we analyze the relationship between art and photography, we find a contradiction in the media: art requires ingenuity and ability that not everyone has, while a camera is a machine that anyone can simply master. Most critics have agreed that art is subjective and dependent on interpretation, so usually if the image generates different meaning or interpretations it can be considered art, and at the same time it can be used for purely utilitarian purposes.   Photography uses the language of visual elements, rather than words, so it can be used for artistic or other purposes, and photography serves its dual purpose without any contradiction.   What distinguishes a true artist is that it has a message that it seeks to convey, and the viewer's ability to interpret the image gives the artist the freedom to ask questions rather than provide answers, which, like any form of visual art, exploits the weaknesses of human visual perception, and can make us feel empathy or hate. Why does photography affect deeply? Unlike painting photography requires the presence of a real physical object to take a picture of. This fact is why we perceive any image as something more realistic than any visual representations of reality. This trait is one of the most important features of photography, and it took some time for artists who chose photography as a means of creative expression to understand this trait.   The portrait painters formed the first group of photographers, heavily influenced by the traditions and techniques of painting, and therefore did not realize the hallmark of photography and only presented their work as photographic paintings. Despite the deep visual appeal of photography, artists who chose to switch to photography developed new techniques to distance themselves from being mere artisans, and these ideas emerged during the early years of photography, when photographers were limited to photographing static people and objects.   The first artistic experiments in photography Thanks to the German photographer Oscar Barnack who invented the first accurate camera with a 35-millimeter lens. Due to technological development, photography began to emancipate. Later, French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson developed photographic techniques and invented the term "decisive moment" which became a sign of his style, describing it to his innumerable followers and disciples. Bryson's idea is to capture spontaneous images at a moment's notice, and the idea of spontaneity has greatly influenced audiences and made photography more believable.   Photography represents reality and cannot exist without it. Photography, on the other hand, enables us to distort or change reality with varying degrees of accuracy, which is why Surrealists embrace photography so strongly. Using all the techniques and semantics they were able to create images that look very personal, in the sense that each spectator tends to interpret the image based only on his personal perception. One notable difference between painting and photography is that drawing is complex and difficult to master, while technology has allowed anyone to take a technically sound photo and accidentally shoot a masterpiece, so when a perfect photograph comes out some think it is something that is not worth talking about.   But a good understanding of the characteristics of light and photographic techniques does not turn a person into an artist, and it is this uncomplicated characteristic that characterizes photography that makes photographers look for the factors that turn photography into art, they also try to use it as a means of expressing their different view of the world, in an attempt   Photography and communication platforms With the rise of social media platforms the public began to view more and more images. This great demand for photography has improved the capabilities of cameras in personal phones, competing with cameras in terms of resolution, focus and color. Through instant sharing and the ability to upload photos, the camera faded backwards and the phone cameras advanced. Although not everyone can become a photographer, a real photographer is not the one who takes dozens of selfies a day, but the one who turns his idea and vision into a journalistic or artistic image.   On the other side there are pluses for those platforms and that instant ability to post photos, which is that photographers rely heavily on social media to promote their photos, away from galleries and art brokers.   Social media advocates say that the moving image is reaching a larger and less exclusive audience thanks to social media, as one no longer needs to move around or live in big cities to access art shows, but at the same time the audience of the communication platforms does not represent the whole audience so it becomes closer to exchanging one marginalized audience for another.   Concluded the source that the two methods complement each other, as social media can attract more viewers to the galleries and exhibitions, and those who cannot go personally have a chance to see the photography online.       #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article

Contactless payment to face Corona in Egypt.. Qatar National Bank Al Ahli launches smart bracelet
Tumblr media
Qatar National National Bank (QNB) in Egypt, in collaboration with Visa, is introducing a new contactless electronic payment technology that allows customers to make bank payments electronically without dealing with banknotes that have become a factor in the transmission of the coronavirus.   The bank last week launched the electronic payment bracelet, to be a faster and safer payment method, relying on contactless payment technology, so that the holder can pay for their purchases using electronic points of sale by simply reading the data of the bracelet remotely, without the need to directly contact with any traditional types of cash such as banknotes or electronic payment cards.   The world's banking systems are turning to digital transformation and relying on online transfers and electronic transactions, to avoid direct dealing with banknotes that may carry the virus, and to avoid the traffic at banks and ATMs that may help spread the coronavirus.   The smart bracelet is the latest contactless electronic payment method and is popular around the world, especially among young people.   Forms of technology of contactless payment systems Systems use contactless payments -both credit card (which contains an electronic chip) or wearable devices like rings and bracelets for electronics, or smartphones and other mobile devices - RF "R. F. I. D." (RFID) or communications near "NFC" (NFC), such as payment systems, Google, Apple, Samsung, ebay, or any mobile application bank (supports connect without notice) conduct operations to secure payment.   The circuit chip and antenna integrated into the bracelet allow the e-reader at the point of sale to recognize user data by simply waving his hands. This must be done within walking distance, unlike mobile payments that use cellular or broadband Wi-Fi networks, and do not need to be near points of sale. These technologies are subject to EMV standards, a common standard used by the three major credit card companies Europay, Mastercard and visa.   Contactless smart device technology-which acts as prepaid cards-has become commonly used as public transport system cards, such as Oyster or riocard, which can often store a value other than currency (such as monthly passes), in addition to the value of the fare packaged in cash or electronic payment. The first bracelet of its kind in the Egyptian market According to Mohamed Al Deeb, chairman and managing director of QNB Al Ahli Bank, the electronic payment bracelet is faster and more secure than other payment methods, and keeps pace with the aspirations of third millennials whose technology is part of their daily lives.   "QNB Al-Ahli Bank is the first bank to offer this bracelet, providing the latest payment methods developed for its customers," al-Deeb said in a press release.   Visa North Africa general manager Ahmed Jaber believes that Egypt is experiencing rapid growth in digital payments, to meet the demands of consumers for easy and seamless payment experiences.   Visa's partnership with QNB Al Ahli Bank offers cardholders a state-of-the-art experience that enables them to complete a full cash transaction with a single click, saving time and effort, according to Jaber.   Advantages of electronic bracelet According to the official website of QNB Al Ahli Bank, the electronic bracelet has a number of advantages, the most important of which is the innovative waterproof design, and being a fast and convenient payment tool the holder will not need to take out his wallet to pay, the bracelet can be refilled through mobile phone service, internet banking service or bank branches,   Qatar National Bank is one of the largest private banks in Egypt, serving approximately one million and two hundred thousand customers in Egypt, more than 227 branches covering all governorates, and 487 ATMs.   The Central Bank of Egypt's policies support the transition to a digital economy that is less paper-based, supporting the use of electronic cards and contactless payment methods and encouraging the use of electronic payment methods, as part of its precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Egypt among bank customers.       #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article

"Watch your step".. A new alert feature from Google warns you against using a smartphone while walking
Tumblr media
Google is testing a feature that alerts users of Android smartphones when they are texting or browsing while walking; to pay attention and monitor where they are heading.   New and optional warnings are starting to appear in beta for some Pixel phones through digital Wellbeing in Android, according to The Verge, but Google has yet to clarify more about this release. It is likely that more phones with digital health will include soon warning pedestrians. The heads Up setup page says, " if you're walking while using your phone, get a notification to focus on what's going on around you," and the reminders include brief notifications with instructions like "watch your step," "stay alert," and"search," based on the dismantling of the app last year.   Distracted walking It seems stupid for your phone to warn you to use it while walking, but thousands of pedestrians die every year, according to reports published by the "9to5 Google" website (9to5Google), so an actual alert reminding people to be careful while walking would not be a bad thing compared to what a Japanese city that has already banned the use of   Warnings will be optional, as will other aspects of a digital health service that also monitors app usage, and can help filter notifications to encourage people to stop checking their phones.   The trial version must be installed manually, so you won't be surprised that notifications appear once your phone is updated, and people may end up turning off the service to stop annoying them when their phones start alerting them when they text or tweet while walking.       #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article

Of which poor security knowledge and easy to guess passwords.. Reasons why Egyptians are a target for hackers
Tumblr media
The data showed that Egypt was one of the highest countries in the rate of attempts to guess users ' passwords last year, with about 42 million attempts to guess observed, while Saudi Arabia recorded 22.5, the UAE 15.8 and Kuwait 11.1.   The reports, announced at a company press conference last March by Kaspersky, a cyber security and protection specialist, come at a time when social media and email have become a breeding ground for cyber attacks. Failed hacking attempts Nada says-Al Jazeera net - that hackers tried to hack her account as she appeared a notice about trying to access her account on the social networking site Facebook more than once, confirming that she was surprised more than once by the presence of this type of notifications from the site, leaving no doubt that there was someone who tried to guess the password of the account.   "It was pretty scary because I kept my personal photos and private messages on the account,"NADA said.   Because of the panic, Nada decided to remove all the photos from her personal account, and changed the password under the suspicion that the hacker could know her. As for Mahmoud Abdullah, his case is different from NADA, the hackers succeeded in their attempts and the damage was not limited to stealing one of his social media pages, but the target was this time his e-mail, which returned him with great damage, especially given the reliance on him at work as an Uber driver.   Mahmoud tells Al Jazeera net that his account was vulnerable to theft from a person and this led to the suspension of his work after the thief changed the PIN code of his e-mail, and then succeeded in controlling his account on the application, pointing out that his lack of experience prevented him from being able to interact with the event and he turned to seek help from technical experts.   Statistics and numbers According to an official report of the Ministry of Communications last January, the number of users of mobile and terrestrial internet services as of last December reached 56.44 million. The causes of the problem The poor awareness of the insurance e-i have many in Egypt highlights the parameters that cause the theft of accounts, e-mail, especially if you can get inventor to know any simple data about the target person, Vickers mobile number, name or date of birth to begin the inventor of the process of trying to break passwords Despite the tendency of many social media and e-mail sites to put means of data protection such as binary security system and the use of mobile phone in the registration process and the use of security questions, there is an obstacle that remains, related to the selection of easy-to-guess passwords for accounts through communication sites or via e-mail,   He pointed out that guessing passwords is a pattern of hackers seizing different accounts, which is known as "Brute force", and through this pattern the hacker can use software that allows a dictionary containing millions of passwords used on e-mail accounts in a way that makes the process of guessing easier than expected as it requires only typing the password.         #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article

6 years after the accident.. That's how the FBI got access to the San Bernardino shooter's cell phone.
Tumblr media
A new report by the Washington Post reveals that the FBI has partnered with an Australian security firm called Azimuth Security to unlock the iPhone linked to the 2015 San Bernardino shooting. The methods used by the FBI to unlock the iPhone throughout this period remained secret, and the confirmed information was that Apple was not involved in the process. The company refused to build a" back door "in the phone, software that allows it to access users' phones without their knowledge and is exploited by hackers to carry out their attacks, setting off a legal battle that ended after the FBI successfully hacked the phone without Apple's help.   The phone at the scene of the conflict was confiscated after its owner, Syed Rizwan Farouk, carried out an attack that killed 14 people. The FBI tried to access the phone, but was unable to do so due to an iOS 9 feature that would erase the phone after a certain number of failed password attempts.   Apple has tried to help the FBI in other ways, but has refused to build a passcode bypass system for its phones, saying such a backdoor would permanently reduce the security of its phones.   After the FBI announced that it had gained access to the phone, there were fears that the security of iPhone phones could be seriously compromised. The method is simple But according to the newspaper, the hack was simple and did not affect the security system, azimuth found a way to guess the passcode as many times as you want without the possibility of scanning the phone, allowing the office to access the phone in a matter of hours.   On the technical details of how to bypass the Auto-Scan feature, the actual hack was done by two azimuth employees who were able to access the phone by exploiting a vulnerability in the main software module written by Mozilla.   This programming from Mozilla has reportedly been used by Apple in iPhone devices, to enable the use of existing accessories software on iPhone. Once the hackers gained initial access, they were able to connect two other services in the machine, giving them full control over the main processor, which allowed them to run their own code.   After that they got the strength, they managed to write and test programs that guessed each set of passcodes, ignoring any other systems that will lock the phone or erase it.   This method of penetration, which used the "Lightning" port in the iPhone to control the processor, was named Condor.   Mozilla fixed this vulnerability that exploits the Lightning port a month or two later, as part of a routine update of its software, which was then adopted by companies that use its software, including Apple.   In the end, these efforts yielded little, the FBI did not get any useful information from the phone, and the bureau was never able to set a legal precedent on whether the government could force companies to compromise on the security of their devices.   A judge ruled in 2017 that the FBI did not have to disclose how it accessed an iPhone, or who helped it, because of concern that the Australian company would face cyber attacks as a backlash for helping the FBI.   #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article

New scam lets anyone block your WhatsApp account easily
Tumblr media
WhatsApp users have been warned by security experts of a major security scam targeting their accounts on the world's most popular messaging app.   The threat allows attackers to close your account by deactivating your account, and bad actors need not do so much more than Know Your Phone Number. The terrifying new scam was first highlighted by two security experts in Forbes magazine, with security researchers Luis Marquez Carpintero and Ernesto Canales Perina warning that anyone could be blocked from accessing their account within 36 hours.   The attack is carried out when a hacker attempts to install WhatsApp on their device and enter a victim's mobile number during the initial account creation process, and if someone does, the victim will receive a WhatsApp text message giving them an important 6-digit code required to complete the setup process.   If the hacker cannot convince the victim to send this code, the probability that he can guess it is almost impossible; therefore, the attacker will attempt to enter using the wrong codes, and continue to fail.   And even now there is no problem, but the problem appears after a number of failed attempts, will WhatsApp stop creating these icons. The chat app will inform the victim that someone is trying -and failing-to set up WhatsApp, and that they have to wait before resending the SMS for 12 hours.   After the 12-hour period ends, the attacker follows the same method of trying random codes, then fails, WhatsApp again stops creating codes for another 12 hours, and while no new setup codes are created, the attacker can create a fake email address and contact Whatsapp support.   The assessment of the victim's phone number for support, he says that his account has been lost or stolen and cook deactivate it. The support officer then locks the user's account, without verifying that the person he contacts via email is an attacker who has the victim's phone number.   If the attack reaches this point, and the attacker sends a message to the WhatsApp support on behalf of the victim, the latter will face a major headache in trying to recover his account. The researchers say it will be too late at this point, and the victim will have to try to find someone from support to speak to in person.   Speaking about the threat, Jake Moore of ESET, an information security firm, said: "This is another worrying breach, which could affect millions of users who are likely to be targeted by this attack. With so many people relying on WhatsApp-as their primary communication tool for social networking and work - it's worrying how easy this can be."   #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article

After the failure of the Renaissance Dam negotiations.. Egypt and Ethiopia exchange accusations, Sudan calls for urgent agreement
Tumblr media
Ethiopia blamed both Egypt and Sudan for the failure of the Ennahda dam negotiations in Kinshasa, while Cairo called the Ethiopian position "intransigent" and responsible for the failure of the negotiations, while Khartoum called for an urgent agreement on the dam.   Ethiopian Foreign Ministry spokesman Dina Mufti said that "the two downstream countries have prevented an agreement on the Renaissance Dam with the aim of taking the file out of the African house and internationalizing it".   At a press conference, the mufti added that Addis Ababa had dispelled all the concerns of the two downstream states and had handed them information and data in response to all their inquiries.   In contrast, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said that "Ethiopian intransigence continues to hamper the negotiations of the Renaissance Dam, and the failure to reach a just and binding legal agreement that serves the interests of all."   During a meeting in the House of Representatives, Shoukry added that the great flexibility on the part of Egypt and Sudan is not reciprocated by Ethiopia, stressing Egypt's keenness to resolve the crisis through negotiation.   Shoukry explained that no country in the world-nor the World Bank - contributes to the financing of the dam directly because the dam is disputed. Agreement urgent Sudan's Irrigation Minister Yasser Abbas called Wednesday for an "amicable and urgent" agreement on the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, especially as its construction is in advanced stages.   "It has become important to evaluate the long process of negotiations to reach an amicable and urgent agreement, especially as the Renaissance Dam has reached advanced stages of construction, for the safety of our dams and national security,"Abbas said in a tweet on his Twitter account.   He added that Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok's invitation to the meeting represents a good opportunity to maintain regional and global peace. On Tuesday, Hamdok invited his Egyptian counterpart Mustafa Madbouli and Ethiopian Abiy Ahmed to a three-way summit via video link, within 10 days, to assess the dam negotiations, which have reached a stalemate.   For 10 years, the three states have been conducting stalled negotiations, and the African Union has been sponsoring them for months.   On April 6, A round of negotiations in the Democratic Republic of Congo's capital Kinshasa ended without progress, with mutual accusations of responsibility between Khartoum and Cairo on the one hand and Addis Ababa on the other.   In July 2020, Ethiopia acknowledged that it had carried out the first water filling of the dam without reaching an agreement with the downstream countries of Egypt and Sudan.   Currently, it insists on a second filling of the Nahda dam next July, even if it does not reach a tripartite agreement on the dam on the Blue Nile, the main tributary of the Nile.   Cairo and Khartoum are committed to first reaching an agreement on filling and operating, which will preserve their water facilities and ensure that their annual share of Nile water, 55.5 billion cubic meters, continues to flow to Egypt and 18.5 billion cubic meters to Sudan.   #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article

New York Times: Biden administration will suspend assault weapons sales to Saudi Arabia
Tumblr media
The New York Times quoted US officials as saying that the administration of President Joe Biden intends to suspend the sale of several offensive weapons to Saudi Arabia approved by the administration of former President Donald Trump, but will allow the sale of equipment with a defense purpose, while it may approve arms sales to the United Arab Emirates.   This plan, which was briefed by Congress last week, is part of the current administration's review of multibillion –dollar arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE, the White House announced following President Biden's inauguration, the newspaper said in a report. Arms sales to Saudi Arabia last year were met with strong opposition from Democrats in Congress, due to their involvement in the Yemen war, and concern over the transfer of advanced military technology to Middle Eastern countries deemed to have ties to China.   President Biden had said he wanted to reset Washington's relationship with Riyadh and announced in February that he would end "all U.S. support for offensive operations in the war in Yemen, including related arms sales," but the White House did not provide more details.   Since then, U.S. officials have discussed weapons sold under the Trump administration that could reasonably be used for Saudi self-defense, including Houthi missile and drone attacks.   The Biden administration plans after the review to suspend the sale of air-to-ground assault weapons used by fixed - wing aircraft-especially fighter jets and drones-to Saudi Arabia, including systems that can turn regular bombs into precision-guided munitions, U.S. officials said.   According to the New York Times, the suspension does not include sales of any other types of weapons to Saudi Arabia, and the use of helicopter weapons, ground-to - ground munitions and small arms, and electronic equipment, including jamming technology, will still be allowed, officials said.   But the review does not recommend suspending any arms sales to the UAE, and this was confirmed after the Ministry of Justice last Monday formally informed lawyers of the decision. The Biden administration will approve 23 billion in arms sales to the United Arab Emirates, according to a US State Department spokesman, including F-35 fighter jets and armed Reaper drones, the newspaper reported.   According to Biden administration officials, those weapons sold to the UAE shortly after the normalization agreement with Israel was signed by the Trump administration are likely to be approved.   "Me and many other House members remain concerned about the proposed 23 billion arms sale to the UAE,"said Rep. Gregory W. Meeks, Democrat of New York and chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He added that he has "many questions about any decision the Biden administration makes to move forward with the Trump administration's proposed transfer" of fighter jets, drones and ammunition to the UAE.   U.S. officials are wary of the UAE's use of U.S.-made weapons, including Reaper drones, in Libya.   But the State Department official, who requested anonymity, explained that it would take years to complete the UAE arms deal and that during that period the administration would ensure that the country fulfils its obligations, such as protecting US technology and ensuring that US weapons are not used in contexts that violate human rights and the laws of conflict.   #news #covid #india #instagram #love #coronavirus #follow #like #media #music #breakingnews #instagood #fashion #viral #trending #politics #noticias #memes #new #corona #usa #football #bhfyp #sports #tv #indonesia #berita #photography #currentaffairs #bhfyp Read the full article
