    Belgium made weapons from FN Herstal & CMI Defense used in Yemen, despite claims and assurances from MP's

    That wasn't the idea behind the remark. It was more in reference to his remark that people in Europe do not care about these things and that it's only for political gains.

    Belgium made weapons from FN Herstal & CMI Defense used in Yemen, despite claims and assurances from MP's

    That last part is quite inaccurate, especially since protestors across all of Europe showed up to hinder and block a Saudi ship from loading European weapons to take back and have strongly voiced their dismay with government officials defending the licensing of deadly arms to Saudi Arabia. Not...

    Belgium made weapons from FN Herstal & CMI Defense used in Yemen, despite claims and assurances from MP's

    I see, perhaps that's where the miscommunication or perhaps deliberate misleading of the Belgium parliament was. either way, the PM has ordered a full investigation based on the media reports, we'll know soon enough...

    Belgium made weapons from FN Herstal & CMI Defense used in Yemen, despite claims and assurances from MP's

    Well the concern in Brussels is that they can not and do not want to be complicit in any way. the European commission, EU Parliament (who urged all member states for a complete embargo) are all on a country's back continuously urging them to abide. Thus far, France is the only one not abiding by...

    Belgium made weapons from FN Herstal & CMI Defense used in Yemen, despite claims and assurances from MP's

    Also outside the country? Apparently they were able to circumvent not selling anything completely, by convincing the government that the sales to the national guard would only be used by them to 'protect the royal family and defend the borders from attacks' and thus Belgium weaponry would in no...

    Belgium made weapons from FN Herstal & CMI Defense used in Yemen, despite claims and assurances from MP's

    'MP Willy Borsus assured that the Belgium weapons sold to Saudi Arabia were under no means meant to be used outside of the country, and all sales were since 2017 only allowed to go to the national guard, who was reportedly not involved with the war in Yemen. But evidence has shown that the Saudi...

    The War Against Media Freedom: France summons 3 journalist for reporting on French involvenment in war crimes against Yemen

    nearly a quarter deaths weren't all ''terrorist''. these are people's children, parents, friends, neighbors who's lives matter just as much as anyone else's. causing this indiscriminate mass deaths will only create more hatred and resentment from a next generation of yemenis towards saudi arabia...

    The War Against Media Freedom: France summons 3 journalist for reporting on French involvenment in war crimes against Yemen

    if there wasn't, then lawmakers in the united states would not seek to find and punish officials in saudi arabia involved with it. ''The measures they are considering include sanctions against Saudi officials involved in blockading shipments of humanitarian supplies to Yemen''...

    nearly a quarter million in ''collateral damage'' of a country where the total population is apprx 27.5 million is not justifiable in any way, shape or form. https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/yemen-death-toll-surpass-230000-end-2019-un-report

    The War Against Media Freedom: France summons 3 journalist for reporting on French involvenment in war crimes against Yemen

    yes the article is about supplied weaponry. they hold a country accountable for the massive deaths of innocent civilians, as they should. as since not providing the weapons, means your country is thus in no way involved in what's going on in that part of the region. and not only weapons, french...

    could be...but the other side must also be willing to play along. but indeed policies and officials change. the foreign minister making the statements from the article for example is already long gone. https://www.worldbulletin.net/middle-east/saudi-arabia-we-do-not-need-german-arms-h199131.html
