The plunge in oil prices has resulted, paradoxically, in a drastic reduction in trade between West Germany and the 21 Arab countries of the Middle East, and a sharp toning down of anti-Israel statements emanating from Bonn. German exports to the Arab countries were down by 8.9 billion Marks or 24.9 percent during the first six months of this year and imports from Arab countries declined by 5 billion Marks or 48.9 percent.
