Must read

Turkey said on Monday that Malaysia and Indonesia had expressed keen interest in buying combat drones from Turkish defense firm Baykar, which has supplied the weapons to several countries after battlefield successes, Reuters reported.

“Many Asian countries, especially Malaysia and Indonesia, show great interest in our defense industry products. Agreements are being signed,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told a press conference in Tokyo.

“We would most gladly meet Japan’s need for drones,” the minister added on a visit there to attend the funeral of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

International demand for Turkish drones has soared after their impact on conflicts in Syria, Ukraine and Libya. On Sept. 21 Reuters reported that Baykar delivered 20 combat drones to the United Arab Emirates this month.
