The United States has created a working group to speed up the supply of weapons abroad.

The United States has created a working group to speed up the supply of weapons abroad.

Michael McCall, chairman of the US House Foreign Affairs Committee, has launched a new working group whose task is to streamline and speed up the supply of American weapons abroad, the congressman said in a statement on Tuesday.

As specified, the new structure, called TIGER, will be headed by committee members Seth Moulton and Michael Waltz. McCall himself said that he intends to promote legislative initiatives in Congress, which will come from the working group, so that US allied countries receive the necessary weapons “as soon as possible.”

“I am proud to be leading the bipartisan TIGER Task Force to examine why many of our arms transfers have experienced delays or increased costs, putting the security of some of our closest allies at risk,” Waltz said.

In the United States, the issue of problems at the enterprises of the military-industrial base has been discussed for a long time. For example, recent media leaks have shown that Taiwan only this year received Stinger anti-aircraft missiles and other equipment, the sale of which was agreed by Washington back in 2019. The problem has become even more urgent in the light of the fact that the United States regularly allocates new packages of assistance to Ukraine at the expense of weapons in the Pentagon’s arsenals.


At the government level, such delays are attributed to problems with production and supply chains caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
