Today, the Danish foreign minister Villy Søvndahl (The Socialist People’s Party) is giving at speech at Amnesty International in Copenhagen in connection with a conference on weapons transportation. At the conference, Søvndahl will recommend that the shipping companies in collaboration with the government draw up a voluntary code of conduct with principles and criteria for which areas and regimes the companies will be allowed to transport weapons to.
“Today, I launch the work to create a, to begin with, Danish code of conduct for weapons transportation in close dialogue with other ministers, the shipping industry, and other partners. Denmark’s significant role in the transportation area provides the ballast which could make the Danish approach a model to the necessary global solutions,” said the foreign minister in his speech.
