Kyiv to Sign a New Military Agreement with Ankara

Ukraine-Turkey

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved a draft framework military agreement with the Government of the Republic of Turkey. The document signing is planned during President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to the Republic of Turkey from 15 to 17 October.

Minister of Defence of Ukraine Andriy Taran announced that the agreement is to create a legal basis for expanding and deepening actual Ukrainian-Turkish cooperation in the field of defence and launching the cooperation in more than 20 fundamentally new, relevant areas.

“Our interaction with Turkish partners is very dynamic. Only in July, we discussed working issues in Kyiv with Turkish National Defence Minister Hulusi Akar and now are on the finish line. Such cooperation, I repeat, reflects the strategic nature of our relations and mutual readiness to ensure peace and security in the Black Sea-Azov region,” Taran stressed.

He also added that the recently approved National Security Strategy of Ukraine identifies Turkey as one of the countries with which our country will develop a strategic partnership to protect national interests and strengthen regional security.
