President Trump has stated his unwillingness to impose any kind of punishment on Saudi Arabia following their alleged involvement in the murder of journalist and permanent U.S. resident Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey. The U.S. is the world’s biggest exporter of arms and according to data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the biggest importer from the country in 2017 was Saudi Arabia.

This infographic uses the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s “trend-indicator values” (TIV). These are based on the known unit production costs of weapons and represent the transfer of military resources rather than the financial value of the transfer.
