Canada has suspended export permits for military products to Turkey. This is due to the information that appeared that Turkish-made drones are used in the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, equipped, in turn, with Canadian sensors and laser guidance systems.
In a response, the Turkish Foreign Ministry criticized Ottawa for double standards and inconsistency with the "spirit of cooperation", moreover, accusing it of taking this position far from the first day - since the beginning of the "Peace Spring" military operation, which Turkey launched in October last year in the north. east of Syria.

This incident added to Ankara's collection of foreign policy differences and conflicts. It is difficult to describe what is happening in any other way, since it seems that the Turkish president has decided to quarrel with all international partners on the widest range of issues.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan is turning into an icon of radical patriots around the world, not just Turkish ones. He embodies their dream of a national leader who goes to his goal, acting straightforwardly, not paying attention to obstacles and taking the most tough official position on any issue.
This is undoubtedly a unique case in the modern world, especially since we are talking about such a prominent regional power as Turkey.
The reasons for this phenomenon are obvious: the head of state, when making decisions on a complex issue, is forced to take into account such a number of factors and restrictions that the result is often the same result, which gives rise to various accusations, including betrayal of national interests.
Against this background, the Turkish president, of course, impresses with the scope of his geopolitical games, which he is playing at the same time, his fundamental disregard for the interests of other participating states, his defiantly scandalous position and his readiness at any moment not only to threaten to resort to military methods, but also to actually do it: Syria, Libya, aggravation with the Greeks, showdowns with NATO (over the S-400) and now Nagorno-Karabakh.

If the other powers involved in the Armenian-Azerbaijani settlement maintain their position above the battle, then Turkey not only provides support to Baku, but generally insists on a military resolution of the conflict - which is downright nonsense for modern politics.
In general, the Turkish leader is rushing like a Boer to the goal of reviving the neo-Ottoman greatness of his country and has even already achieved some success on this path. And we have to admit that such a line of behavior really has its own charm, especially against the background of the undercover games, behind-the-scenes agreements and diplomatic shuffling, which are usual for the international arena.
It's just too early to judge the long-term effectiveness of Turkish foreign policy. Moreover, with each new conflict that Ankara gets involved in, the chances grow that it will not end very well for her.
And Turkey itself has something to remember in this context - and from the events of the very recent past. The United States clearly loomed behind the attempted military coup in the summer of 2016, and Europe, almost without hiding, was rooting for the success of the insurgency. The power - and, most likely, life - of the Turkish leader was then saved by Moscow by providing critical information on time.
The point here is not at all that Erdogan quickly forgot the good deed he had done for him - sentimental considerations are inappropriate in big politics.
