Acton Alert: Ask Minister Champagne to condemn Azerbaijan and suspend arms sales to Turkey
Please take one minute to e-mail Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Hon. François-Philippe Champagne asking him to immediately condemn Azerbaijan’s aggression towards Artsakh and Armenia and suspend all arms sales to Turkey.
Azerbaijan’s and Turkey’s full-scale offensive against the Republic of Artsakh and Armenia has now entered it’s third day, with no end in sight to their abhorrent crimes and violations of international law.
The lack of the necessary response from Canada and the international community over the years has now emboldened Azerbaijan. On September 27, Azerbaijan launched yet another offensive on Artsakh, along the complete line of contact. The targeting of peaceful regions and civilians far away from the line of contact, and the shelling the capital Stepanakert is a cause for extreme concern and outrage.
What is more outraging, however, is the fact that reports have surfaced – with overwhelming evidence – that Azerbaijan is using the Turkish made Bayraktar TB2 attack drones, the very same drones that are equipped with the Canadian manufactured target acquisition sensors, made by L3Harris/WESCAM.
The Armenian-Canadian community is demanding from the Government of Canada to:
1) Condemn Azerbaijan’s and Turkey’s unprovoked aggression,
2) Demand Turkey’s immediate withdrawal from the conflict,
3) Immediately halt all Canadian military aid to Turkey who’s on record providing Azerbaijan with UAVs that are equipped with Canadian manufactured target acquisition avionics.
AZERBAIJAN AND TURKEY MUST BE CONDEMNED AND CONTAINED
