Canada says it is lifting a freeze on arms exports to Saudi Arabia | Instant News


OTTAWA, April 9 (Reuters) – Canada lifted a freeze on arms exports to Saudi Arabia and has renegotiated a contract valued at $ 14 billion, which has been widely criticized for selling General Dynamics Corp armored vehicles to Riyadh, Ottawa said on Thursday.

Foreign Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said in a statement that “significant improvements” to the contract would secure thousands of jobs at a Canadian subsidiary in the US, where vehicles were being made. (Reporting by David Ljunggren)
