NETHERLANDS TIGHTENING EXPORT CONTROL POLICY IN TURKEY AFTER THE INVASION OF THE TURKISH ARMY IN NORTHERN SYRIA

A statement from the Dutch Government on 14th October announced that it had decided to tighten Dutch arms export policy with regard to Turkey.  Until further notice, no new licence applications for the export of military goods to Turkey will be considered and no new licences will be issued.   It also said that other EU states, such as France, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Belgium, have also tightened their national arms export policy.
