Posted by Jessica Hajj on 10/17/19 5:00 PM

On October 11, 2019, the Government of the Netherlands announced its decision to restrict military exports to Turkey in response to Turkey’s recent actions in Syria. As a result, the Dutch Government will cease reviewing all new export license applications for military goods to Turkey, and no new licenses will be issued.

The Dutch Government also indicated that other members of the European Union, including France, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Belgium, are implementing similar restrictions affecting military exports to Turkey.
