US to sell Patriot Air Defense System to Romania
US State Department has announced to sell Patriot Air Defense System and related support and equipment to Romania.
Romania is a NATO partner with important geo-strategic access to the Black Sea, where Russia-seized Crimea is located.
Meanwhile, the United States has postponed for three months a decision on whether to permanently lift certain sanctions on Sudan over its human rights record and other issues.
Former President Barack Obama had lifted the sanctions for six months in January last and a decision by his successor, Donald Trump, on whether to scrap them permanently was expected on Wednesday.
