Grey List’ of Finnish arms exports

Arms exports from Finland to 26 countries in 2008 may have been in conflict with EU policy according to a new report from SaferGlobe Finland. 

Based on EU criteria and other guidelines for arms exports, the report includes a ‘Grey List’ of recipient countries including Afghanistan, China and Israel. "We are questioning whether it is in line with Finland's foreign policy to send weapons to these kinds of countries", said Jarmo Pykaelae of SaferGlobe. www.saferglobe.fi/index.php/download_file/view/52/
