Prohibition on arms export to Saudi Arabia extended : Germany

Berlin: Germany has extended the ban on arms deliveries to Saudi Arabia until March 2020. A spokesperson for the German government announced the decision.

The freeze has been exercising from last October, after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. And the ban was formalised in March.
