Record decline: German exports of weapons and components to Turkey fell 2020 times in 15

51

The German media published data on the military-technical contacts between Berlin and Ankara. In particular, it is reported about a record decline in recent years in German exports of arms and other military products to Turkey.


According to the latest information, in 2020 such exports collapsed 15 times. If at the end of 2019 the indicators were about 344,6 million euros, then at the end of 2020 - already less than 23 million.

The German press reports on what this is connected with.

It points to the introduction of an arms embargo against Ankara in connection with its military invasion of northern Syria, controlled by Kurdish formations. These sanctions were introduced in the fall of 2019. After that, exports steadily fell, and in 2020 only those contacts were implemented that were concluded between Turkey and Germany until October 2019.

In connection with the German embargo in Turkey, the implementation of the tank project was suspended, problems arose with other military-technical programs.

Germany introduced new anti-Turkish sanctions after Turkish ships began to explore fields in the Eastern Mediterranean.

At the same time, the German press notes that against the background of a sharp drop in the volume of contracts with Turkey in the military-industrial complex, the volume of orders from Egypt began to grow. Today, this portfolio amounts to almost 0,75 billion euros. Also Germany sells weapon and components for some other countries of the Middle East - Qatar, Kuwait and the UAE.

Recall that at the end of last year, several other countries, including the United States, introduced sanctions against Turkey. In particular, the accounts of the leadership of the Directorate of Military Development were frozen.

      After all, they can sometimes make wise decisions in Germany. Our benefit will be that it will now be more difficult for Turkey to arm the Ukraine that hates us.

        It seems that the Turks themselves want to replace imports in Ukraine at a cheap price.

          They now have 2 technical partners, the main ones, Ukraine and England. Britain quarreled with Europe i.e. with Germany and France, began to actively make friends with the Turks.
          The Germans seemed to have perked up and realized that they were losing the Turkish market, but until the election of a new chancellor (Merkel leaves), nothing will fundamentally change.

            Now in Turkey, someone probably says that the sanctions were imposed on a far-fetched pretext, and if they were not imposed for the Kurds, they would still be imposed for something else. So it is easier to disaccustom the population to think once again, but whether the decisions of the Turkish ruling elite were really correct.

            It's not even about the market, the British are professionals in manipulating states in the BV, I think they will play these cards within 7-15 years and will try to strengthen their spheres of influence.
            PS. But socks in their mouths, as they began to lose colonies, so they begin to lose financial flows, financial centers are shifting to the APR.
            Egyptians, Iranians, Turks and other BV countries should be very careful in dealing with the dark hag.

              Naturally, Britam is not interested in the Turkish market. They need control and resources in Transcaucasia, Central Asia, North Africa, the Middle East, Iran, Pakistan. Turkey can become another lever. Turks need technology and money. By the way, Cyprus is also under the British, which can also be a bargaining chip.

                Imha, everything will be integrated.
                With the collapse of the USSR, Western countries rushed their markets to the East, simultaneously pumping out everything of value, including cutting down forests. Now everything is complicated for them, in the domestic market there is fierce competition, which is aggravated by depleted natural resources, they have no way to the West, there is only one water around, so it turns out that they have a "path" to the East and across the Mediterranean Sea. They are already afraid to go head-on to the East. Much can be assumed, but even their education system and medicine are degrading. In Switzerland! children in grades 1-2-3, (4-5-6, etc.) study together, the child can pick his nose and lie on the mat with headphones on, the main thing should not be conflicts, tolerance.
                Medicine, ours from Austria, Serbia, USA, England arrive and run to take tests and analyzes with us, to treat teeth with us (although our system is moving along their path with this "optimization").
                England is holding a little better than France, they, being in the EU, still kept themselves apart.
                In general, life will not be better. With the introduction of digital technologies, food will become more affordable, the spectacle is greater and the quality of life for the majority, only worse.

        The Americans kicked the Germans, and there was at once
        proud and independent Germany has a "wise decision".

        I'm just sure the Germans are bitter
        tears are shedding over the cancellation of contracts,
        painfully they love money.

        And Erdogan needs to decide quickly,
        whether he's smart, or handsome.
        Instead of trying to sit on a few
        chairs at the same time.

        Lyra broke the bottom,
        Turkey is in deep debt.

    The largest arms supplier to Turkey is the USA (60%), Germany (30%). Only 10 countries from the EU have also introduced an embargo. But the United States has not announced yet, only intimidated. (starting with the S-400). For the United States, Turkey’s presence in NATO is more important than their squabbles.
