The U.S. State Department has approved the sale of Javelin anti-tank missile systems to Morocco at an estimated total cost of $260 million. As part of this sale, Morocco will be supplied with 612 Javelin FGM-148F missiles, which include 12 fly-to-buy missiles, along with 200 Javelin lightweight command launch units (LWCLUs).

According to the U.S. State Department, this proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by enhancing the security of a major non-NATO Ally. Morocco is recognized as an important force for political stability and economic progress in North Africa. It is emphasized that the proposed sale of this equipment and support will not disrupt the fundamental military balance in the region.
