Global News published this video item, entitled “Foreign affairs minister appears before committee on export of turbines to Russia | LIVE” – below is their description.

Canada’s minister of foreign affairs Melanie Joly and minister of natural resources Jonathan Wilkinson are expected to appear before the House of Commons foreign affairs committee on Thursday to discuss the export of Russian Gazprom turbines.

Liberal chair Ali Ehsassi has said it is important for Canadians to hear how the decision was made and that the meeting would help establish “the diplomatic representations that were made” around the decision.

On Wednesday, Joly and German foreign minister Annalena Baerbock both insisted the return of the turbines used in the Russian pipeline was necessary.

They also said the fact that the turbine remains in Germany after Canada allowed its release — and that Russia has since reduced natural gas supplies to Germany to 20 per cent — reveals the level of dishonesty from President Vladimir Putin.

Germany’s ambassador to Canada, Sabine Sparwasser, is also expected to appear before the committee, alongside the European Union’s ambassador to Canada, Melita Gabri.
