Germany Rejects Greece’s Demand for a Ban on Weapon Sales to Turkey

The German foreign minister on Monday expressed his country’s opposition to Greece’s demand to impose an arms embargo on Turkey.

Speaking to the Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa), Heiko Maas said: “I do not find the demand of an arms embargo against Turkey strategically correct. It is not easy to do this against a NATO partner. We saw that NATO ally Turkey easily bought missiles from Russia because it could not buy from the U.S.” Source Greek Reporter
