German government approved the supply of the first patrol craft to Saudi Arabia

According to the DPA news agency, German Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel has informed the German parliament on the decision on the issue after a closed-door meeting of the Federal Security Council.

In early 2015, the German Federal Security Council authorized the partial resumption of exports of military equipment to Saudi Arabia, previously suspended due to unstable situation in the Middle East.

Germany’s Left party and the Greens have repeatedly voiced opposition to arms sales to Arab countries, saying Germany should not supply weapons to states that systematically violate human rights.
