Norway Suspends Arms, Ammo Exports to UAE amid War in Yemen
Local Editor

Norway suspended exports of munitions and arms to the United Arab Emirates, saying it was "an expression of a strict precautionary line" and was based on "a comprehensive assessment of the situation in Yemen" where a Saudi-led coalition has been pounding the country for three years.

The UAE is part of the coalition.

In this regard, Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soreide said she has "no information" that any of Norway's military exports have been used in Yemen but that there's "great concern" over the humanitarian crisis.

She further noted that since 2010, Norway has allowed sale of weapons and ammunition to the UAE.

The decision to suspend sales for so-called A-material - munitions and arms- was made on Dec. 19 but announced on Wednesday.

At least 13,600 people have lost their lives since the onset of Saudi Arabia's military campaign against Yemen in 2015. Much of the Arabian Peninsula country's infrastructure, including hospitals, schools and factories, has been reduced to rubble due to the war.
