Germany freezes the arms exports to Turkey after the military offensive in Syria. “Against the background of the Turkish military offensive in northeastern Syria, the German government will not issue new permits for all military equipment that could be deployed by Turkey in Syria”, said Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

Turkey is the largest buyer of armaments supplies from Germany. The NATO partner launched a military offensive against the Kurdish militia YPG in northeastern Syria on Tuesday, opening a new front in a country that has been wracked by a civil war for eight years.

Germany since 2016, has applied a very restrictive line for arms exports to Turkey, Maas told the German newspaper. Arms Delivery worth US $267.93 million to Turkey made up almost one third of all exports in 2018. In the first four months of this year Ankara received deliveries worth US $203 million.
