3,000 Ukrainian police officers are set to train in Turkey. Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko settled the issue with his counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdoğan during his visit to Istanbul, reports President's press office.
Along with qualification skills the participants of the program will reportedly be equipped with necessary facilities.
Police training is a good form of international cooperation between Ukraine and Turkey, insists Poroshenko adding the same agreements are likely to be settled in terms of Ukraine's National Guard's military drills.
Except for the police and military trainings, Kyiv and Ankara agreed mutual investment protection along with the means to avoid double taxation in order to provide Turkish investors with proper opportunities in Ukraine, as well as for Ukrainian investors in Turkey.
