CANADA BLOCKS DEFENCE EXPORTS TO TURKEY OVER SUPPLY OF DRONES TO AZERBAIJAN

On 12 April, Rferl reported that Canada has halted some military exports to Turkey after a probe confirmed Canadian drone technology was used by Azerbaijan in last year’s fighting with Armenia over the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region.  It had suspended military export permits to Turkey last October pending an investigation.  This found credible evidence that Canadian technology exported to Turkey was used in Nagorno-Karabakh.  The export ban includes camera components used in Turkish drones.  Canada had previously suspended export licenses during a Turkish military incursion into Syria against Kurdish forces in 2019. Those restrictions were then eased, but reinstated during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
