Alexey Bogdanovsky. The head of the USA Barack Obama will sign congressional defense budget, despite the fact that it contains measures prohibiting to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, told reporters White house press Secretary Josh Ernest.
according to him, the law " is important in order to rule the country and protect it "." for this reason I think the Manager will sign the law when he lieth down to him on the table, " said Ernest. Thus, according to his statement, Obama still insists on closing Guantanamo is a national priority.
New more than 600-billion-dollar defense budget preserves key parameters of the latter, which was vetoed by the head of Barack Obama. For example, it extends a ban on closing the prison for foreign terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
similarly, the law provides the authorization for spending on assistance to Ukraine arms in the amount of 300 million dollars, if the administration deems it necessary. In the conditions of a ceasefire in Eastern Ukraine, which in General has been observed for more than 2 months, the White house makes no implication that such assistance will be provided.
