Canada has made the decision to lift restrictions on the supply of certain categories of arms to Turkey. This decision followed Turkey's ratification of Sweden's membership in NATO.

Now, each request for the export of military goods to Turkey will be considered individually.

The Canadian government will require Turkish importers to provide guarantees of the use of the arms and an official statement confirming that the exported goods will not be resold or transferred to countries not part of NATO.

At the same time, Canada reserves the right to suspend or revoke export permits.

This decision has drawn criticism from the Armenian National Committee of Canada, which expressed concern about the potential negative impact on human rights, international security, and fairness.

Previously, Canada suspended the sale of drone technology to Turkey after it was discovered that Canadian equipment installed on Turkish drones was used by Azerbaijan in the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

It was previously reported that Canada announces a ban on the sale of gasoline and diesel cars by 2035 as part of the fight against climate change
