Germany needs answers before selling weapons to Turkey, says official

Germany's informal hold on defence exports to Turkey remains in place over concerns about the destination of arms, a European official told journalists on Wednesday.

According to the official, Turkey has so far failed to explain the purpose of the hundreds of defence exports it has requested from Germany, and no serious conversation is taking place between the two countries to respond to Berlin's concerns over their final destination.

Even though there is no formal arms embargo enforced by Germany against Turkey, Ankara says Berlin has put an informal hold on a large number of defence industry products that are crucial to the country’s defence capabilities.
