Indonesia to Buy U.S. Military Equipment (AP)

U.S. response to having our terrorist expert not allowed back into Indonesia, is to sell military weapons to them.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - Indonesia plans to start buying military equipment from the United States in January following the lifting of an arms embargo, and will prioritize transport aircraft, the defense minister said Friday.

But the minister, Juwono Sudarsono, stressed that Indonesia would keep looking to other countries for its defense needs.

"We are still evaluating the best packages for our military equipment based on our budget," he said.

On Tuesday, Washington lifted a six-year embargo on arms sales to Indonesia.

Before the ban, which was imposed due to human rights concerns, the United States was Indonesia's largest supplier of weapons and equipment.

The embargo had left many of the country's Hercules transport planes grounded due to a lack of spare parts and forced Indonesia to look for other, cheaper suppliers of military hardware.
