The US House of Representatives called for limiting the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia

350 lawmakers supported the measure.

The House of Representatives of the US Congress approved a bill that would restrict the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia. According to The Hill, the document is linked to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

350 lawmakers supported the measure, while 71 voted against it.

The bill implies suspending the sale of certain weapons to the kingdom until the US authorities can confidently say that the Saudi administration does not repress dissidents and does not carry out arbitrary detentions of foreign citizens. Now the document must be passed in the Senate.
