Canadian government announces Turkish arms embargo

40

The Canadian government announced a decision on the embargo on the supply of arms and military equipment to Turkey. Earlier, Canadian authorities introduced a ban on such supplies to Ankara after Turkish troops launched an operation in northern Syria.


The government of Canada, which, like Turkey, is a member of NATO, said that the ban on the supply of military products to Turkey will continue as long as the Turkish military is located in the north of the SAR - in areas with a predominantly Kurdish population.

However, statements were made in Ottawa that the embargo could be lifted from May 1.

Now it’s become known that the Canadian Cabinet of Ministers has decided to indefinitely extend the ban on the supply of arms and military equipment to Turkey.

A government statement from Canada contains the following words:

Embargo extended until further notice.

This is a notification that Canadian arms supply companies were expecting to receive. Now these companies will have to continue to wait for the lifting of the embargo, but the government again makes it clear that there will be no lifting of the embargo until the withdrawal of Turkish troops from northern Syria.

In this situation, the following is important: the presence of the Turkish military in the Idlib province of the Canadian government for some reason does not raise questions. Ottawa is worried about the presence of the Turkish Armed Forces only where the Canadian-American military contingent previously held.

    These are Turkey’s allies. They’d better supply the Kurds with weapons from which they will kill the Turkish military.
    Ottawa is only concerned about the presence of the Turkish Armed Forces where the Canadian-American military contingent previously held.

      Until they receive the go-ahead from the White House, special notice, then they will deliver weapons. Where is Canada and where are Syrian Kurds.

    The Turks had in mind all the allies ... They set a cool deal in Syria.
    Jumped over the United States, and Russia, and Iran. The whole army enclave,
    highway control, dozens of strong points. In a businesslike turn.

      If you look at the map, you can see that Russia, Iran (the territory controlled by Assad), the United States (the territory controlled by the Kurds) jumped Turkey, behind which the least territory (the territory of green SNA).

        "they overtook Turkey, which has the least territory" But, about half of the population of Syria is under the wings of the Turks, based on the remaining population in Syria and its border areas. The same picture is in Libya. About Turkish Saraj controls only 7-9% territories of Libya, and under the wings holds a little more than half of the population of Libya.

      Turks themselves are arms manufacturers, they are also exporters. Up to 70% (about 20-27 years ago this figure was in the region of 30-98%) they produce military equipment, necessary weapons and ammunition (30% shells and bombs). The remaining XNUMX percent is mainly connected with military aircraft, which the Turks themselves do not produce. But after a few years they will reduce this dependence to a minimum. So, the view of the landscape is the same in Mount Agra, from the Iravan balcony for ever.

      In Toronto, in normal neighborhoods, solid Chinese people who have escaped from the communist regime live there — they dump them like our oligarchs in London.
      It’s not the refugees who are terrible - the people of Holodía are terrible, now the situevina is such that they can form for themselves for internal reasons, after all, the global economic crisis. Therefore, loot must be received by any means, while it is possible, and not demonstrate loyalty to the owner.

        The Chinese appeared in Canada much earlier. The first wave was during the "gold rush". Then after the opium wars. Moreover, from Hong Kong (via Hong Kong). There were no problems, because Canada and Hong Kong were British dominions. And today the influence of the PRC on huaqiao is no less than that of the local Triads.
        It is impossible to compare Chinese and Muslim refugees, because the Chinese respect the laws of the country in which they live.
        Well, and "gopota" she is "gopota" everywhere. As long as they receive financial assistance, benefits for communal apartments will not twitch.
        As for weapons, many Canadian firms are American subsidiaries or work in close cooperation with all the consequences.

          It was a long time ago, officials from China and corruption are constantly starting from China who are afraid that they will be taken for the trunk, but I agree with the fact that they bring down where there is already a diaspora.
          This also applies to Bandera.
          If they didn’t respect the laws, they would send them back.

    What does Canada supply to Turkey?

    Some BLAAs are small .. Anti-aircraft artillery, which has already lost its relevance (the Turks themselves began to make military air defense systems no worse .. And of course the NF -5 Canadier, which Turkey has already taken out of service .. Most likely this is a kind of calculated gesture for the USA, they say we are with you too hi

    What will the Turkish authorities do? Do everything your own .... what they can of course, but they can already do a lot.
    All countries that want to become serious players, although used in their region, are on the path of separation from allies. This is already a trend.

      About 10-12 years ago, the Turks asked the United States to sell them UAVs to fight the PKK. They agreed to buy for any money, but they were refused, such as infringing on the rights of the Kurds. The Turks from hopelessness began to create their drones, at the beginning for reconnaissance, then they were already fighting. As soon as they set up serial production of UAVs, the USA immediately began offering them drones, three times cheaper than the price when the Turks asked and they were refused. This time the Turks refused to buy UAVs from them, saying that they are with a mustache. They will not notice Canada either, since they do not need their weapons.

    According to Global Affairs, in 2018, Canadian arms sales to Turkey amounted to about $ 87 million.

    What is so critical that Canada can supply to Turkey, and even the amounts are quite ridiculous
