CANADA SUSPENDS ARMS EXPORTS TO TURKEY OVER ARMENIA-AZERBAIJAN CONFLICT

On 6 October, Middle East Monitor reported that Canada has suspended arms export permits to Turkey over concerns that it is using its technology in the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

“TURKISH DEFENCE INDUSTRY MOVING ON DESPITE EMBARGOES”

On 6 October, the Anadolu Agency carried an article saying that Turkey’s defence industry is proceeding on its way regardless of embargo decisions, the head of the country’s Defense Industries Presidency has said.  He cited the CATS [Common Aperture Targeting System] cameras, for armed UAV, which are going into mass production.  This came after Canada announced it had suspended exporting some defence products to Turkey over an allegation that the “Canadian technology is used in the military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh”, with Turkey accusing Canada of double standards by suspending export permits of some military products.
