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

DW quoted German Chancellor Angela Merkel as saying that she saw “no conditions, at the moment, for a changed stance” on the German government’s side.

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