Presidents of Russia and Turkey Vladimir Putin and Tayyip Erdogan did not discuss the possible production in Russia or the purchase of Bayraktar drones from Turkey. This was told to RIA Novosti by the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov.
When asked if the leaders discussed issues related to Turkish drones, the Kremlin spokesman replied in the negative.
Recall that the talks between the presidents of the two countries were held on Friday in Sochi. The conversation lasted over four hours.
Earlier, Peskov said that Putin could discuss “military-technical cooperation” with his Turkish counterpart. “Military-technical cooperation between the two countries is constantly on the agenda. And the very fact that our interaction is developing in such a sensitive area suggests that, in general, the whole range of our relations is at a very high level, ”Peskov said.
It was also reported about the desire of the Russian Federation and the UAE to cooperate with the Turkish drone manufacturer Bayraktar. Meanwhile, the company stated that it “would never supply its drones to Russia.” The Erdogan administration also noted that cooperation with Russia on the production of Bayraktar drones is not yet being considered. Although the Turkish leader said that his colleague Vladimir Putin wants to establish production of Bayraktar drones in Russia.
