Germany reviewing all Turkish applications for arms projects - spokeswoman

BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government is reviewing all applications for arms projects from Turkey, a spokeswoman for the German Economy Ministry said on Friday as tensions between Berlin and Ankara simmer after the NATO ally detained rights activists.

“We’re checking all applications,” a spokeswoman for the Economy Ministry said without giving further details.

Mass-selling daily Bild newspaper, citing government sources, had previously reported that Berlin was putting arms projects with Ankara on hold.
