Turkish leader spoke with France, Italy about co-producing Eurosam missiles: Top Turkish diplomat

Baku, March 26, AZERTAC

Joint Turkish production of a European missile was discussed when the Turkish president met with Italian and French leaders in Brussels earlier this week, according to Turkiye’s top diplomat, according to Anadolu Agency

During NATO meetings in Brussels, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi “and the main issue was the Eurosam SAMP/T and defense system,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told CNBC's Hadley Gamble at the Doha Forum on Saturday.

Eurosam “is a joint venture of France and Italy. And we signed an agreement, a letter of intention with Eurosam like eight years ago, (but) nothing happened until today. Now those two countries are most curious to have joint production in Turkiye to export SAMP/T, the air defense system, to my country," Cavusoglu explained.
