U.S. and Canada Reportedly Reach Partial Agreement on ITAR Controversy

Canada's The Globe and Mail newspaper reported today that the U.S. and Canada have reached an agreement on how to handle the recent controversy involving dual citizens that work on military projects in Canada which are subject to the U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The paper reports that:

The Harper government has come to terms with Washington on a deal exempting Department of National Defence employees from U.S. restrictions that prevent dual nationals from 17 countries from having access to data related to U.S. military technology.

Under the deal, the exemption could eventually be extended to other federal bureaucrats, and then, with the agreement of the U.S. government, to people in the private-sector industry.

"It's a step-by-step approach," a federal source said.
The Cabinet of Canada's foreign affairs and national security committees are scheduled to consider the agreement this week.
