Canada halts arms supplies to Turkey




The Canadian Foreign Ministry notified Turkey of the suspension of arms supplies due to military operations in Syria. Deliveries were stopped indefinitely, most likely until the end of Operation Source of Peace.

In light of recent events, Canada has temporarily suspended new export permits to Turkey, which cover “controlled goods” - mainly military equipment, according to a list provided by the ministry

- the statement says the Foreign Ministry of Canada.

A day earlier, the British government suspended the issuance of licenses for the export of arms to Turkey, Spain also announced the termination of the issuance of licenses for the export of arms to the Turks, Sweden revoked the permission to export military-industrial complex products to Turkey. All countries have linked their prohibitions with a military operation in Syria.

Earlier, the suspension of arms supplies to Ankara was announced in Germany, France and the Netherlands.

As previously reported, Europe has reacted extremely negatively to Turkey’s military operation “Source of Peace” against the Syrian Kurds, demanding that Erdogan immediately terminate it. In turn, the Turkish leader said that the operation will continue until it reaches its objectives, namely: the return to the territory of the created "security zone" in Syria of 3-x million Syrian refugees.

      But in general, sanctions are especially unpleasant for Turkey, especially from Spain. UDC, after all, they build according to the Juan Carlos type under license, plus its equipment, which comes from Europe .. sadness for them.
      And I'm glad we do not need Turkish UDC in Black))

      The Chinese are only rubbing their hands, and Eodogan has raised his defense industry in recent years, which is why he is neither hot nor cold from these statements. And he also has a terrible horror story for Europe in the amount of three million ... So no one will do anything serious to him, certainly Europeans. It’s just as the Americans recently crushed because of the S-400, and then only the whole world was neighing over the results, but here you are, they refused to supply weapons ... funny ..

        There was information that Turkey independently provides for its weapons requirements by 67%. It seems that there are other suppliers to the vacant niche of 33%. In general, this is nonsense when NATO countries undermine the defense of a country within NATO. In the course of their head full of bedlam.

        In turn, the Turkish leader said that the operation will continue until that time, until it reaches its objectives, namely: the return of 3 million Syrian refugees to the territory of the created "security zone" in Syria.
        If the EU does not want their return to Syria, then let it be prepared to host it.

      There are practically no irreplaceable suppliers, and Canada is definitely not among them. Buy in another place that's all. In addition, we are talking about new contracts concluded will be implemented.

        hi
        Arms procurement is not a priority for Turkey. It is much more important for it to become a hub for energy carriers in "Europe", as a result of which it will have one more instrument of pressure on "sworn partners" (in addition to the transit of refugees from BV to the EU). And this "argument" is practically on the way out. In addition, it can compensate for the purchase of weapons not produced in Turkey from Russia and China, and this is a tangible blow to the Anglo-Saxons, especially since the Arab countries are increasingly turning their proud noses towards Russia, and not the United States and its comrades. In general, time will tell.

      Canada’s actions are understandable - the satellite cannot go across the sovereign. The United States said it needed to be done, Canada replied - IS! That's just judging by all of Turkey so far it does not give a damn. NATO creaks, but so far unfortunately holds on.

      The loss is not great for the Turks, since they still have mixed weapons, there is no empty place, we can safely take these places, and China will not sit idle either.

      Pakistan will help the Turks with arms. At the same time, there is a chance to test the Pakistani defense industry in combat conditions. They will be inferior in quality and superior in quantity. So let's see ..
