“The EU should reconsider the matter, the position (on arms exports. — RT) should be unified. We have to be careful and lead a discussion at the EU level”, — quotes TASS of the former Minister.

According to him, the middle East is in the list of ten regions “leading to the importation of arms”.

“And eight largest exporters, from Europe,” said Gabriel.

In January, Gabriel said that the EU should retain a nuclear deal with Iran, separating it from other problems.
