Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Germany suspends arms exports to Saudi Arabia. This has been announced by Chancellor Merkel.
According to Merkel, no arms deliveries can take place “in the current situation”. First, clarification is needed about what happened to the Saudi journalist Khashoggi at the consulate in Istanbul.
Saudi Arabia is the second largest customer of the German weapons industry. Until September 30, the government granted export licenses worth 416.4 million euros.
