Turkey on Oct. 6 slammed Canada‘s decision to suspend arms exports to the country, accusing Ottawa of “double standards.”

Canada’s announcement on Oct. 5 comes as it investigates the alleged use of Turkey’s military technologies in the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict.

“We expect Canada to pursue a policy far from double standards and to act without influence from anti-Turkey circles in the country,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.

“While Canada does not see the harm in exporting arms to countries militarily involved in the Yemen crisis… and presents the sales as a contribution to regional security, there cannot be any other explanation for its prevention of arms exports to its NATO ally,” it added.
