Britain and Spain joined other major powers Tuesday in suspending military exports to Turkey following its incursion into northeastern Syria.
Britain is carrying out a review of arms sales to its NATO ally, its chief diplomat said.
“We will keep our defence exports to Turkey under very careful and continual review,” Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said in a statement to parliament.
“No further export licences to Turkey for items which might be used in military operations in Syria will be granted while we conduct that review.”
Spain, a major arms exporter to Turkey, similarly announced a halt to sales of military material.
