Switzerland Partly Lifts Ban on Middle East Arms Exports

The Swiss Federal Council has partially lifted a ban on arms exports to Middle Eastern countries in place since last year, local media reported Wednesday.

In March 2015, the Swiss government suspended arms supply deals with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in response to violence escalation in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition had begun conducting air strikes against Houthi rebels.
