A German official has confirmed that his country has no intention of granting new arms export licenses to Saudi Arabia following the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Al Jazeera that Berlin did not export any weapons to Saudi Arabia during the last quarter of 2018 in the wake of Khashoggi's brutal murder on 2 October at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

In December, Germany announced a drop of 26 per cent in its arms exports to Saudi Arabia in 2018.
Other countries have also announced that they will not supply arms to Saudi Arabia or will seek to cancel arms deals in the future, including Italy, Canada and Finland.
