Workshops - Relations between the EU and Saudi Arabia in the field of security and defence - 13-10-2016 - Subcommittee on Security and Defence

Mon, 10/10/2016 - 15:27
Saudi Arabia and Member States have long established relations in the field of armaments cooperation. In 2015, Saudi Arabia spent EUR 75 billion on defence. Yet, it still relies on the security guarantees provided by the United States. Many in Europe have reservations about arms exports to the Kingdom, driven by concerns on the respect of the international humanitarian law in the conflict in Yemen. There is, however, no common European position regarding the defence ties with the country.
