The Trump administration is nearing completion of new 01:00 "Buy American" rules to make it easier to sell U.S.-made military drones overseas and compete against fast-growing Chinese and Israeli rivals, senior U.S. officials said. While President Donald Trump's aides work on relaxing domestic regulations on drone sales to select allies, Washington will also seek to renegotiate a 1987 missile-control pact with the aim of loosening international restrictions on U.S. exports of unmanned aircraft, according to government and industry sources.A long-delayed $2 billion sale to India of General Atomics' Guardian surveillance drones finally got U.S. approval in June.A major hurdle to expanded sales of the most powerful U.S. drones is the Missile Technology Control Regime, or MTCR, a 1987 accord signed by the United States and 34 other countries, which set rules for the sale and purchase of missiles.To gain international approval for the relaxed U.S. export rules, U.S. officials want the MTCR renegotiated.
