Germany opposes supplying Ukraine with cluster munitions

Jul 7, 2023

Germany is against sending cluster munitions to Ukraine, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said.

She told reporters at a climate conference in Vienna on Friday, Reuters reports.

Baerbock noted that Germany, as one of the 111 states parties to the Convention on Cluster Munitions, opposes their supply. The United States, which intends to make the delivery, is not a party to the convention, nor are Ukraine and Russia.


Asked to comment on the expected delivery of these munitions to Ukraine, Burbock said: "I have been following the media reports. For us, as a state party, the Oslo agreement is in force."

Baerbock referred to the agreement opened for signature in Oslo in 2008, which bans the use, stockpiling, production, and transfer of cluster munitions.
