Canada’s travel restrictions on military personnel are hurting Canadian soldiers and their families, according to an international defence expert.article Military officials say military travel to Spain is a top priority as they work to ease the nation’s isolation amid the crisis over the military’s planned visit to Iran.
The military travel suspension in Spain was lifted after two U.S. officials confirmed that the president of Spain’s National Guard, Josep Estevez, would travel to Iran for talks.
The suspension of military travel in Spain follows a similar suspension in April that resulted in a U.N. ban on military travel from the U.K. and U.A.E. “It’s not just the military that’s hurting,” said John Feddersen, a retired Canadian military commander and author of several books on military policy.
“It’s the whole family.
We are losing our children.
We’re losing our spouses.
And we’re losing so many people that are not able to get a job.
We’ve lost so many families.
The whole economy is going to be impacted by this.”
The U.B.C. has been the world’s leading supplier of defence equipment to the military.
The organization has been under international pressure to curtail its military procurement and is expected to announce a $4 billion reduction in spending by the end of the year.
The military has been in a state of “unrest” since last month when it announced that it would hold its first meeting with Iran since its 1979 revolution.
Since then, the military has faced an unprecedented wave of attacks and counterattacks in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, with reports of military casualties and equipment destruction.
A U.F.O. plane and two fighter jets belonging to Canada’s Royal Canadian Air Force crashed in Iran.
The incident has prompted a number of international organizations to suspend military exports to the country.
In the wake of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, Canada has also suspended military exports of fighter jets to the Middle East.
Feddersen said it’s not only the military, but the whole economy that’s affected.
We’ve got to do the right thing.”
