France eyes Libyan deal for Eurocopter Tiger attack helicopters
By Aimée Turner in London

France is in the early stages of considering a proposal to sell Eurocopter Tiger attack helicopters to Libya, subject to approval by French inter-ministerial commission CIEEMG, which advises on the authorisation of arms exports.

Dead link.

Does the German government have anything to say about the sale?

Get rid of the last tag and it's working fine:

France's relations with Libya had been strained after the bombing of a French UTA McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 over Niger in 1989, which killed 170 people. Libya has since agreed to pay compensation.

Yes, they need to agree. They won't contradict the French Gov in that regard, but I can't imagine that this deal will be approved.

Now you are contradicting yourself ! Maybe a typo ?
Anyway, I am sure the Germans will demand their share of the deal.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

I should say "they won't publicly contradict the French Gov". Libya is not (yet) that type of country you sell highly-sophiticated weapon systems to. I guess they will sort it out under the table and this rumor might already be the last thing we hear from that story ...
