Middle East Peace and Stability Law and Legal Definition

Middle East Peace and Stability is a federal legislation authorizing the U.S. President to provide cooperation and assistance to any nation or group of nations in the Middle East. The assistance is provided on a nation’s request for its development of economic strength for the maintenance of its national independence.

Military assistance program is one of the initiatives under Middle East Peace and Stability legislation. Furthermore, the U.S. considers it vital to preserve the independence and integrity of the Middle East nations. The U.S. aids in maintaining middle east peace and stability by using armed forces to assist any such nation or group of such nations requesting assistance against armed aggression from any country controlled by international communism. However, the aid provided is to be in consonance with the treaty obligations of the U.S and with the constitution of the U.S. [22 USCS § 1962].
