Turkey’s defenсe companies will participate in the upcoming XIV International specialized exhibition “Arms and Security – 2017” in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The biggest Turkish defence contractors Aselsan, Roketsan, BMC and ARES Shipyard already claimed that they will participate in the Arms and Security – 2017 exhibition held at the International Exhibition Centre in Kyiv for four days from October 10th to 13th.
Now Ukraine is becoming Turkey’s new go-to defense technology partner. Strategic ties between Turkey and Ukraine in the fields of defense and military cooperation are flourishing.
Turkey’s interest in the Ukrainian defense industry is basically in satellite technologies, diesel engines, ballistic missile solid fuel engines and cruise missiles. It is interesting to learn, based on their joint projects, that Turkey is particularly interested in cruise missiles.
According to defense industry expert Arda Mevlutoglu, Ukraine has advanced capability in electronic warfare, radar technology and engines. Mevlutoglu said Turkey’s most urgent needs from Ukraine are diesel engines.
The Arms and Security – 2017 exhibition conducting on the eve of the Day of Defender of Ukraine will have not only a great practical but also social significance. The exhibition “Arms and Security” is a unique tool for the deepening of military and military‑technical cooperation with foreign partners, to strengthen domestic economic potential and for the union of all Ukrainian citizens, regardless of gender, nationality or religion, around the idea of building a new strong and prosperous Ukraine.
