Russia and Turkey have signed an agreement to boost cooperation in areas of defense, defense technology and trade, Russia’s foreign ministry said.
The ministers of defense and defense industry signed the agreement at a signing ceremony in Moscow.
It follows a series of bilateral agreements between Russia and Ankara over defense issues, including on cooperation in space.
In July, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced plans to expand military cooperation with Turkey, and Turkey announced plans for the first joint military exercises with Russia in 20 years.
The two countries have signed contracts worth more than $1 billion to equip their militaries.
