Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt met with his German counterpart, Heiko Josef Maas, to discuss how this decision was delaying the delivery of jets including the Typhoon.
Mr Maas said Germany's future relationship with Saudi Arabia was dependent on the situation in Yemen.
In an attempt to reduce the strain of their relationship with British and French partners, the German government has agreed to extend the export licenses that had already been granted for another 9 months.
However, they made it clear that companies are not allowed to deliver any finished weapons systems to Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates until the end of 2019.
The German government also insisted that any weapons systems delivered were not deployed to the Yemen conflict.
