U.S. President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were joined by King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Naif Al Saud and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud at a signing ceremony that included Boeing products and services.

These announcements reaffirm our commitment to the economic growth, prosperity and national security of both Saudi Arabia and the United States, helping to create or sustain thousands of jobs in our two countries,” said Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg, who also participated in the Saudi-U.S. CEO Forum.

The U.S State Department on December 8 announced plans to sell CH-47F Chinook cargo helicopters worth $3.51 billion through the Foreign Military Sale program.

This possible FMS includes 48 CH-47F helicopters, 112 T55-GA-714A Engines, 58 AN/AAR-57 Common Missile Warning Systems (CMWS), 48 M240H 7.62mm Machine Guns, as well as training and support.
