Norway Government has declared on 9 November it was freezing all defence material export licences to Saudi Arabia over recent developments in the country and the war in Yemen.

The announcement came amid international outrage over Riyadh's killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul in October, though Norway did not mention the murder specifically.

‘We have decided that, in the current situation, no new licences are to be granted for exports of defence-related products or dual-use items for military use to Saudi Arabia,’ Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soreide said in a statement.

‘The decision was taken after an overall assessment of recent developments in Saudi Arabia and the region, and the unpredictable situation in Yemen,’ the foreign ministry said.

Norway sold defence material worth more than 41 million kroner ($4.86 million) to Riyadh last year, according to Norwegian news agency NTB.
