WASHINGTON - Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on Thursday the Trump administration has taken steps in the congressional notification process to advance the sale of Raytheon Co precision-guided missiles to the US ally.

The munitions include armor-piercing Penetrator Warheads and precision guided Paveway missiles.
