The Arab League (AL) and Germany signed here on Monday an agreement on small arms and light weapons control in the Arab world, Egypt's official MENA news agency reported.

Under the agreement, Germany will provide money to the league for holding the first Arab meeting on small arms and light weapons control among Arab countries, according to the report.

The agreement was signed by AL assistant secretary general for financial and administrative affairs Samir Saiful Yazal and German Ambassador to Egypt Martin Koebler.

The agreement will contribute to the implementation of the UN Program of Action on Small Arms and Light Weapons that works to combat and eradicate illicit trade in small arms and light weapons, reported MENA.
