BERLIN - Germany is ready to sell more than 200 Leopard tanks to Saudi Arabia in a multi-billion euro deal after the government's security council gave its stamp of approval last week, Der Spiegel magazine reported on Sunday.

A government spokesman declined to comment on the report that said Saudi Arabia was interested in acquiring more than 200 2A7+ tanks, saying the government provided no information on security council decisions or individual export deals.
