[Editor’s note: I had to laugh when I read and heard this….. keeping in mind that the German Nazis were in alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood in WW2 and the still as yet to be confirmed report about underground bases in Germany built and utilised in the last ten years for the express purpose of training Wahhabi Islamic Extremists , funded by billionaires in the Gulf States along with major German arms sales. The same Islamic State that has been shipped into Libya, Syria, Iraq and western Ukraine. So I have to ask, is there anything new about these agreements? Or is it an attempt to come clean and make it look “legal” and above board in the eyes of the world? ]
Angela Merkel, who arrived in Jeddah on Sunday, backed the United Nations-led process of diplomatic resolution to the Yemen crisis. She also called for an end to the extremely bad humanitarian situation in Yemen. However, an agreement was signed during Merkel’s visit for Saudi soldiers to receive training at German military facilities. German federal police are also to give instruction to Saudi border police, among other things. There are growing fears that German-made weapons are being used in the Saudi strikes on Yemen. Only in 2016, Germany exported more than half a billion euros worth of armaments to Saudi Arabia. Berlin says weapons could still be delivered to Saudi Arabia on a case-by-case basis.
