Spain will suspend the issue of licenses for the export of arms to Turkey


The Spanish government will stop issuing licenses for arms exports to Turkey due to Ankara’s military operation in Syria.

The corresponding statement was published on the website of the Spanish Foreign Ministry.

“In coordination with its partners in the European Union, Spain will refuse to issue new licenses for the export of military materials that can be used in operations in Syria,” the statement said.

Earlier in Britain, it was reported that the government has suspended the issuance of licenses for arms exports to Turkey due to the military operation of Ankara in Syria. Also, Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Mayo said that Italy plans to stop arms exports to Turkey.

October 9, Ankara announced the start of the ground part of the military operation "Source of Peace" in northeast Syria. Later, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stated that the Turkish side went to the military operation because the United States refused to fulfill the promise made earlier.

US leader Donald Trump signed a decree imposing sanctions against Turkey in connection with this military operation.
