Abdulsalam Praises Countries which Stopped Arms Sales to Saudi Regime
Head of the National Delegation, Mohammed Abdulsalam, praised the countries that have taken steps to stop selling weapons to the Saudi regime.
“We express our appreciation to the countries that have taken steps to stop selling weapons to the Saudi regime, who killed the children of Yemen,” Abdulsalam said in a tweet.
He called on other countries to take the same step as the least humane stance in the face of this brutal aggression that poses a threat to international security and stability.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition agreed in March 2018 to prevent arms sales from being delivered to any country directly involved in the war in Yemen. The Saudi regime has received the decision as a surprise, as of the killing of civilians in Yemen has nothing to do with these arms deals.
“The idea that weapon sales were stopped to Saudi Arabia because of the Yemeni war is illogical,” said Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir on Sunday.
