US denies South Korea T-50 Golden Eagle export permission to Uzbekistan

The US has refused to authorise a proposed South Korean export of 12 T-50 Golden Eagle advanced trainers to Uzbekistan.
The deal, may have been dependent on US approval thanks to the integration of Lockheed Martin technology on the platform during its co-development with KAI in South Korea.
US concerns are focused on the possibility that Uzbekistan could allow information on sensitive US technology, such as is used on the aircraft's avionics and engines, to be transferred to Russia, a close ally of Uzbekistan.
