The Swiss parliament refuses to return Leopard tanks to Germany


Geneva, SANA- The Security Committee in the Swiss Senate opposed the return of 30 Leopard tanks from the stores of the Syrian Army.


The Security Committee in the Swiss Senate opposed the return of 30 Leopard tanks from Swiss army stores to Germany, as they represent a strategic reserve for the country.

The committee said in a statement posted on the parliament's website today that its members rejected, by a majority of eight votes against two, a proposed parliamentary initiative to dispense with 30 tanks out of 96 Leopard tanks in the Swiss army and return them to Germany.

According to the statement, members of the Senate committee believe that these 96 Leopard tanks represent a strategic reserve that must be preserved, so that they can be used to supply army tank battalions.

It is noteworthy that Germany seeks to supply the Kyiv regime with Leopard tanks under American pressure, within the framework of the continuous Western military support for this system.

Switzerland has previously rejected requests from Germany, Spain and Denmark to re-export ammunition produced in the European Union to Ukraine, and has confirmed its refusal to re-export military materials if the intended country is involved in an armed conflict.
