Canada blocks sale of defence equipment to Thailand - IHS Jane's 360

Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs Stéphane Dion has recently blocked the sale of military equipment to Thailand, the Canadian government has confirmed to IHS Jane's. A spokesperson for Global Affairs Canada (GAC) - the government department that oversees the country's foreign relations and trade - did not provide details about the type of equipment that was barred from sale but said the value was "modest". The spokesperson indicated that the sales ban was decided on a case-by-case basis and that it was a response to Canada's concerns about Thailand's human rights record. The Southeast Asian country has been governed by the military since a coup d'etat in May 2014. Want to read more?
