Turkey and Kazakhstan to Jointly Produce Drone

The governments of Turkey and Kazakhstan have agreed to jointly produce the new ANKA unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) drone in a facility to be established in Kazakhstan.

“We have signed an agreement with the state-owned Kazakhstan Engineering on Technology Transfer on development and production of the new drone,” Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAS) said on Wednesday.

According to Anadolu, Kazakhstan will be the first country outside Turkey to produce ANKA reconnaissance-strike drones. 

TUSAS General Manager, Temel Kotil expressed his happiness with the agreement and said that this venture would also help to further strengthen the commercial and friendship ties with the “friendly and brotherly” country of Kazakhstan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said that he met with his Kazakh counterpart Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in the capital city Ankara and they signed a joint declaration on bolstering a bilateral strategic partnership.

Erdogan said that the two countries intend to increase their bilateral trade volume to $10 billion in the near future.
