United Kingdom suspends arms exports to Turkey over Syria offensive”

"The European Council notes tonight's US-Turkey announcement on a pause for all military operations", the 28 leaders said in a joint statement.

We appeal to Turkey to cease military action and return to the right path of political settlement.

Spain was Turkey's fifth biggest arms supplier between 2008 and 2018 after the United States, South Korea, Germany and Italy, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.

Britain's halting of military sales to Turkey follows similar moves by key European and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, including Germany - one of Ankara's main arms suppliers - and France.

Sweden also announced it had halted exports of military equipment.

"Egypt welcomes U.S. President, Donald Trump's position on those developments, representing clearly America's rejection of the ongoing Turkish attacks on Syrian land and the imposition of preliminary sanctions on the Turkish regime, " the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

"Two permits that have been active have now been recalled regarding other military equipment", Carl Johan Wieslander, acting director of the Inspectorate of Strategic Products (ISP) that deals with such exports, told AFP.

But the European Union says the operation is causing "unacceptable human suffering" and undermines the fight against the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group. Accordingly, once he accomplishes this task, Turkish troops will be withdrawn from northern Syria.
