Norway rejected Azerbaijan's application for arms purchase

PanARMENIAN.Net - Norway rejected Azerbaijan's application for the purchase of defense equipment in 2016, the country's parliamentary report on arms export for last year revealed, according to Haqqin.az.

Alongside Azerbaijan, Israel and a number of other countries were rejected too.
