Germany has announced Friday it will stop all arms exports to countries involved in the ongoing war in Yemen, a government spokesperson has announced.
The decision, announced on Friday by a spokesperson for German Chancellor Angela Merkel , comes as political parties including Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Social Democratic Party (SPD) continue to hold talks about forming a coalition government following the German federal election last September .
Germany “isn’t taking any arms exports decisions right now that aren’t in line with the results of the preliminary talks”, Steffan Seibert, a spokesperson for Merkel, said in a post on Twitter.
