South Africa Company ‘helping Saudi Arabia develop drones’

THE state-owned manufacturers of missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), Denel Dynamics, this week defended the sale of its technology to countries approved by the United Nations and the National Conventional Arms Control Committee, amid claims that it was co-operating with Saudi Arabia to develop drones that can carry missiles.

While the US has refused to sell Saudi Arabia drones, partly due to that country’s poor human rights record, the South African National Conventional Arms Control Committee has not blacklisted the Saudis, making it legitimate for Denel to sell weapons to that country.
