The significance of Germany’s alliance with Turkey

German Arms Exports to Turkey Boomed in 2019

The significance of Germany’s alliance with Turkey


Turkey received more than a third of Germany’s total weapons exports last year, a classified document by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, now available to the German Press Agency, shows. Turkey is one of the most controversial members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and has repeatedly pursued opposing goals. Germany’s alliance with Turkey foretells a betrayal of the United States-led alliance.

Germany exported $928.6 million worth of weapons in 2019, including submarines, tanks, combat aircraft and guns, according to its Economic Ministry. When other armaments, such as armored ambulances and military trucks, are added in, the arms exports amounted to over $8 billion.

No country has bought as many war weapons from Germany as Turkey. In 2019, Turkey received $388.6 million worth of weapons.
