Source: The Left “The saber-rattling of the Saudi ambassador to Germany, Prince Faisal bin Farhan al-Saud, to Iran is unbearable and unacceptable. It can not be that the representative of the Saudi dictatorship threatens war from Germany. The federal government must order the Saudi ambassador to clarify that his war threats against Iran are incompatible with his diplomatic status. Those who really want to de-escalate the situation on the Arabian Peninsula must stop the Saudi bombardment in Yemen, “explains Sevim Dagdelen, Deputy Chairwoman and Spokeswoman on Disarmament for the DIE LINKE fraction. Dagdelen continues: “Saudi Arabia’s ambassador and his head-from-dictatorship blatantly threaten war against Iran with their talk that ‘all options are on the table’. Tehran’s direct responsibility for the attacks on Saudi oil rigs remains to be proven by Riad. This escalation policy, which aims at a devastating war in the Middle East, must give the Federal Government a clear rejection. If Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Heiko Maas want to do something for peace in the region, they should impose a comprehensive arms export ban against Saudi Arabia, which also prevents deliveries via third countries such as France and Great Britain. In addition, for a complete arms stoppage, the deliveries of German armaments companies via subsidiaries in third countries must be ended and the embargo immediately extended to all countries of the Yemen war coalition, above all Egypt and the United Arab Emirates. “
