Erdogan says Angola requested Turkish-made UAVs, armored carriers


There are significant cooperation opportunities between Turkey and Angola in the defense and energy fields, the Turkish president said on Monday.

Visiting Angola as part of his Africa tour, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a news conference with his Angolan counterpart Joao Lourenco that Angola previously requested Turkish-made UAVs, while Monday’s talks also included armored carriers.

Angola previously requested Turkish-made UAVs, today’s talks also included armored carriers, Turkish President Erdogan said.

“In the last 19 years, Turkey has taken many steps in the field of the defense industry that also struck Angola’s attention,” noted Erdogan, adding that the countries’ defense ministers will hold further discussions.

The Turkish-African business forum will be held in Turkey on Oct. 21-22, while the Turkish African Cooperation summit will be held in Istanbul on Dec. 17-18, Erdogan also said.

The two countries can improve cooperation in tourism, education, and trade sectors as well, he added.
