Germany's government has extended its ban on exporting arms to Saudi Arabia for another six months, Reuters reports, citing an official statement.
The embargo was set to expire this Sunday as the German ruling coalition was struggling to reach an agreement on whether to prolong the ban.
Earlier this month, the German government extended the embargo on arms sales to Saudi Arabia until the end of March, "due to the developments in Yemen" as German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said at the time.
Germany announced the ban in October, amid the controversy surrounding the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in a Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
Berlin's move prompted Paris and London to ask Germany to revoke the ban, since some of French and UK weapon companies use German components.
