The U.S. administration to persuade Congress to finalize the budget for 2016 on the principle of "dollar for dollar" without increasing defense spending without increasing costs to other important areas.
last week the head of Barack Obama has vetoed a Draft defense budget, since the text suggests the growth of military spending presumably by 90 billion dollars in the coming fiscal year without the conclusion of broader budget agreements between 2 parties in Congress. To overcome the veto, the Republicans in Congress may not be enough votes, say the observers.
"we believe Congress should put these concerns (the US administration) at the forefront. There is a real defense for programs that need more (funding), but we must adhere to the principle of "dollar for dollar" to ensure that similar investments will be focused on the priorities in the economy, as well as among them on the priorities that are not included in the defense budget, but are critical To our national security, " said Commissioner White house Josh Ernest at a press conference.
The draft defense budget among other things provided that from 612 billion total expenditure budget planned to allocate 300 million dollars to provide assistance to Ukraine in military and intelligence cooperation, including military weapons, ammunition, drones, anti-tank weapons and mortars. To expend these funds, and if so, in what way, have to decide jointly the Ministry of defense and the U.S. Department of state.
