Germany to approve $6bn fighter jet sale to Saudi Arabia

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has urged German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to approve a $6 billion sale of Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets to Saudi Arabia.

Sunak has argued that the deal is important for the UK's defense industry and that it will help to create jobs.

Scholz has said that he will not approve the deal until he is satisfied that Saudi Arabia is committed to improving its human rights record.

The sale of the Typhoon jets is controversial, and there is opposition to it from both within Germany and the UK.

Some critics argue that the sale will make it easier for Saudi Arabia to commit human rights abuses, while others argue that it will damage Germany's reputation.

Supporters of the sale argue that it is important to maintain a strong relationship with Saudi Arabia and that the deal will help to boost the UK's defense industry.

The sale of the Typhoon jets is controversial for a number of reasons.

Saudi Arabia has a poor human rights record. The country has been accused of arbitrary arrests, torture, and executions

The UK is providing military support to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen. This support includes providing arms and training to Saudi forces.
