Deutsche Welle interview on German arms export policy gives shortened statements

Jun 23, 2020

In mid-June, the director of the ISPK, Professor Dr. Joachim Krause, gave an interview with Deutsche Welle on German arms export policy. This was included shortened in a rather lurid report about the Sig Sauer company.

As a result, the full text of the interview, which dealt with the German arms export policy in a much more comprehensive way, was hidden. For this reason we are also reproducing the full interview here.
