Turkey - impose an arms embargo on Burma

When police started opening fire on peaceful protesters after the military coup on February 1st 2021, gun cartridges left behind had the name of an Italian company on them.

But it wasn’t Italy which had exported them (the EU has an arms embargo). The cartridges were supplied by a Turkish company which had purchased them from Italy and then sold them on to the Burmese military.

Even after Turkey condemned the genocide of the Rohingya in 2017, it had still allowed Turkish companies to supply equipment to the military which committed that genocide.

Even after backing a United Nations resolution calling for UN members to stop the flow of arms, Turkey hasn’t imposed its own arms embargo.

Tell Turkey to stop arming the Burmese military.

Impose an arms embargo now!
