STATEMENT OF J. M. DUNN, ACTING EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE COUNCIL ON INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC POLICY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1975
Mr. Chairman and members of the subcommittee, I am pleased to respond to the Subcommittee's requests for information regarding arins sales to Arab oll producing countries as compared to U.S. payments for their oil, and for QUE COM ments on regulation of the use of foreign sales agents,
Middle East oil producing countries are defined to include Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) plus Iran, OAPEC is made up of ten countries: Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Qatar, Emited Apat Emirates, Egypt, Bahrain and Syria. All but Syria export oll to the Emited Plates There are two types of security assistance programs that pertain in this situa tion, the grant military assistance program and the foreign military antes infor gram. The grant program is a military aid program and is of limited significancR in the Middle East. Only Saudi Arabia was a recipient of this type of maalalance in FY-1973 and FY-1974, and none of the OAPEC nations received any neelafauck under this program in FY-1975. Aid to Saudi Arabia each year amounted to only $200,000, out of worldwide totals of $593,400,000 in ir Y-1973 and 2778,500,000 14 FY-1974. Thus, for all practical purposes we are concerned only with foreign mil itary sales.
Table 1 indicates the amount of orders taken under the foreign military anluca program worldwide and for the four recipient countries among CARRO FOR A A 1973 to 1975. Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Linga placed offera unded thie program and, of these, only Saudi Arabia and Iran have been majot pierdinakpa In FY-1973 the four countries accounted for a little more Nah 2h protend of Viðar orders placed under this program-which declined to about 45 peliant 14 #7 1975.
