The German government announced Wednesday that it had approved a missile sale to Saudi Arabia, lifting a long-time ban on arms exports to Riyadh.

German Chancellor Olaf Schulz's spokesman confirmed to reporters that the government had given the green light at the end of 2023 to sell Iris-T missiles to Saudi Arabia, after the information was revealed by Der Spiegel newspaper.

Last Sunday, the German Foreign Ministry announced that it was ready to allow new sales of Eurofighter fighters to Saudi Arabia , as the German veto was blocking a contract concluded in this context years ago.

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock told the press during her visit to Israel that the German federal government “does not oppose British considerations” regarding selling more Eurofighter fighters to Saudi Arabia.

Birbock stressed Riyadh's "constructive role" in the security crisis that the region is witnessing since the "Al-Aqsa Flood" operation launched by Hamas against Israel on October 7.

Germany has frozen arms sales to Riyadh since the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in late 2018.
