Germany has extended by six months an embargo on weapons exports to Saudi Arabia, instituted last October.
Government spokesman Steffen Seibert yesterday said in a statement order to halt authorised weapons exports to Saudi Arabia is extended by six months from March 31 to September 30, 2019..

Berlin reacted to Khashoggi's murder at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last October by declaring a freeze on weapons sales to Saudi Arabia and other countries involved in the Yemen war. At least 10,000 people are estimated to have been killed in the Yemen war since March 2015.
