US intel implies Saudis boosted missile program: report

US intelligence indicates that Saudi Arabia has significantly improved its ballistic missile program with assistance from China, according to a report released Wednesday, Anadolu reports.

The development is at odds with decades of US policy geared toward reigning in missile development in the region over fears that proliferation could quickly spark an arms race in the volatile region.

President Donald Trump’s administration did not make the intelligence available to key lawmakers, angering Democrats, CNN reported, citing three anonymous individuals with knowledge of the intelligence.

Those Democrats learned about the intelligence “outside of regular US government channels and concluded it had been deliberately left out of a series of briefings where they say it should have been presented,” CNN reported, citing the sources.
