Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has said his government is going to take a formal position on the halting arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
Giuseppe Conte gave the information while addressing his traditional end-year news conference on Friday, reports Reuters.
“We are not in favour of the sale of these weapons and so now it is only a question of formalising this position and acting accordingly,” Conte said.
He was answering a question on Italy’s ongoing arms exports to Saudi Arabia in the light of its involvement in the conflict in Yemen and the murder of journalist Jamal Kashoggi.
