Germany: Failure to resolve Khashoggi affair threatens arms exports to Saudi — Seibert

German government spokesperson Steffen Seibert condemned the Saudi Arabian handling of the Khashoggi case, which he added could influence Germany’s future decisions on arms exports to Saudi Arabia, speaking at a press conference in Berlin on Monday. «We strongly condemn the crime and we expect transparency from Saudi Arabia concerning the circumstances surrounding the death and the background... Еще and that those responsible are held accountable,” said Seibert. “We still don't know anything about the mortal remains of Mr Khashoggi. So we furthermore expect this case to be thoroughly, credibly, transparently and promptly investigated and clarified and this in close cooperation between Saudi Arabian and Turkish institutions,' he added. “As long as the investigations go on and as long as we don't know what happened — Maas has also said this — there aren't any bases for positive decisions on arms exports to Saudi Arabia,” said Seibert.
