EU parliament calls for arms embargo on Saudi Arabia

 

 

The European Parliament on Wednesday urged the EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, to impose a ban on the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia over concerns that Riyadh might have delivered the imported weaponry to terrorists in Syria and might have used it in the Yemen conflict.

 

At a plenary session of parliament in the French city of Strasbourg on Wednesday, the members said the export of arms to Saudi Arabia violates the common position of the Union.
