Ukraine and Turkey to intensify cooperation in defense sector

Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov in the scope of his working visit to the Republic of Turkey has held a meeting with Head of the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries, Ismail Demir, in the city of Ankara.

“The sides have discussed the issue of stepping up military and technical cooperation between our countries. While discussing prospects of joint projects in the defense and industrial complex, the sides have agreed that ‘by having united resources in the work, much more results could be achieved, rather than separately,” according to the NSDC press service.

Besides, the parties discussed the creation of joint companies, as well as a Ukrainian-Turkish scientific and research center for studying and analyzing the use of advanced military and technical developments in conditions of current military conflicts. The parties also achieved agreements on creating a joint special group to coordinate the work on joint projects, which will involve representatives of defense industries of the both countries.
