The media group reported that the German Security Council would hold a meeting later on Wednesday to discuss joint European arms projects that had already been approved earlier but were blocked due to Germany's ban on arms sales to Riyadh.
According to the RND, the SDP party is prepared to back the projects which involved no more than 20 percent of the components coming from Germany.
In late February, the deputy chairman of the SPD faction in the Bundestag said the SPD backed the extension of ban on arms sales to Saudi Arabia. A temporary ban was announced by Berlin in October amid a controversy surrounding the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in a Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Earlier this month, Germany extended the arms ban until the end of March.
