During Erdogan’s meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, they signed bilateral agreements that focus on the defence cooperation between Turkey and Ukraine.

“We have signed an agreement today that will significantly expand the production of UAVs designed by the Turkish company Baykar,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky revealed during a joint press conference with Turkish President Erdogan.

“Military co-operation between Ankara and Kyiv is not intended to target Russia but will not be stopped to please Russia,” said Erdogan’s director of communications Fahrettin Altun.

Fahrettin Altun added that Turkey has tried to use its ties with both nations by offering to mediate between Russia and Ukraine to resolve the recent border crisis. In addition, he said that Erdogan may host Russian President Putin to Turkey, but no date has been set yet.
