WASHINGTON, March 29 President Donald Trump's
administration has informed Congress of its plan to restart the
congressional review period for the sale of 19 Lockheed Martin
F-16 aircraft to Bahrain, along with 23 engines and other
related equipment, a congressional source said on Wednesday.
Congress was originally notified of the sale in September
2016 by former President Barack Obama's administration, but it
was pulled back because of human rights concerns. The Trump
administration has separated the human rights issues from the
transfer, the source said.
