Ukraine's major state-owned arms manufacturer Ukroboronprom and Turkey's Havelsan signed April 8 a memorandum on joint development and production of radar stations, Ukroboronprom's press service reported.
"Ukroboronprom has significant experience in the development of radar equipment. We will combine our efforts with the leading Turkish company and develop a powerful innovative product that will meet international military standards," the press service quoted Ukroboronprom CEO Roman Romanov as saying.
According to Romanov, one of the priorities of the Ukrainian military and industrial complex is to adopt international standards in arms and military equipment production.
"Turkey is a NATO member, therefore, this experience will allow Ukraine to deepen its military cooperation with NATO countries," the press service went on to say.
