Canada has cancelled export permits to Turkey for drone technology, the foreign affairs department announced, after a government review found that Canadian-made systems had been used by Azerbaijan in the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
In a statement on Monday, Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau said the review ''found credible evidence'' that Canadian technology was used in the disputed territory during six weeks of fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia late last year.
''This use was not consistent with Canadian foreign policy, nor end-use assurances given by Turkey,'' Garneau said in the statement.
