Importações de armas da Arábia Saudita

October 24, 2018 -- A Alemanha interrompeu a venda de armas à Arábia Saudita, juntando-se à Bélgica, Grécia, Finlândia, Noruega, Suécia e Espanha que pararam
total ou parcialmente as entregas de armas à Arábia Saudita e EAU.

Speaking on Sunday, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the arms freeze in the wake of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Bonn exported €416.4 million ($477.5) of weapons to Riyadh in the year to the end of September, making the kingdom Germany’s second-best arms customer after Algeria.

Meanwhile, several countries -- including Belgium, Greece and Norway -- have responded to public pressure by partly or suspending arms transfers to Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other coalition members.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he’s willing to freeze a C$14.8bn ($11.3bn) deal to export armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia following the killing of Khashoggi.

Sweden, which cancelled a defence agreement with Riyadh last year, has suffered little economic hardship in relations with Saudi Arabia.
