Saudi Arabia Wants Trump to Drop 9/11 Terror Victims Law By Tom O’Connor On 3/20/17

The oil-rich kingdom’s Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih, who also heads the lucrative state-owned petroleum company Aramco, told The Wall Street Journal that the government was “not happy” about the passage of the September of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, also known as Jasta, which held foreign governments responsible for acts of terror committed by their nationals against the U.S. citizens. Falih said the law was passed during a “heated political period” under former President Barack Obama, who opposed the bill but pressed Riyadh on other human rights issues such as its role in the conflict in Yemen. Falih said the Trump administration would reverse the law.
