Source: Die Linke “With its ongoing arms exports to several states involved in the Libya war, the German government is undermining the results of its own Berlin conference for a political solution to the conflict, which includes the implementation of the UN arms embargo. In order to stop further bloodshed, the German government must finally stop its arms deliveries, especially to Turkey, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, which give massive support to the conflicting parties in Libya, ”said Heike Hänsel, deputy chairman of the DIE LINKE parliamentary group, on the occasion of the Today’s video conference on the results of the Berlin Libya Conference in January. Hansel continues: “While Foreign Minister Heiko Maas is cheaply calling for an end to arms deliveries to Libya before the UN General Assembly, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey are fighting with German weapons and military equipment in Libya. Even after the proven use of German Mercedes Unimogs from Turkey and SX45 military trucks from MAN and Rheinmetall in Libya, which have so far only been used as a missile delivery system by the United Arab Emirates, the Federal Government remained completely inactive If its arms export and arms control practice does not fundamentally change, it is part of the problem, not the solution. “
