Khashoggi: Denmark Suspends Arms Sales To Saudi

Denmark today suspended arms sales to Saudi Arabia over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the second country to do so after Germany.

“The foreign ministry is suspending all sales of weapons and military equipment to Saudi Arabia,” Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen said.

“I hope that the Danish decision can create additional momentum,” he added.

A foreign ministry spokesman said Copenhagen was not considering other sanctions for the moment.


On Monday, Germany decided to bar 18 Saudis from entering its territory and Europe’s Schengen passport-free zone over their alleged links to the murder. Blame them?
