Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Cavusoglu met with his South Korean counterpart in Seoul on Friday to discuss bilateral ties, defence industry co-operation and investment.

Cavusoglu said a “Technical Working Group” had also been set up to deepen relations between the two countries.

Describing South Korea as an “important partner” in the defence industry, he said the South Korean defence minister had signed a document “approving the sale of a power package for the Altay”, adding that this was an important step in the project’s success.

Talks between Turkey and South Korea on co-operation in Altay development appear to have started in March.

Altay is Turkey’s first major tank development program, which has plagued the country’s defence industry for many years as it has encountered major problems, most notably the supply of key parts of the tank, such as the engine.
