Turkey's largest producer of missiles, Roketsan, has exported goods worth $244m to Azerbaijan, according to the Turkish National Defence Ministry.

Azerbaijan's minister of the defence industry, Yaver Jamalov, and Turkish Defence Minister Vecdi Gonul, signed an agreement on the joint production of missiles for multiple rocket launch systems in February this year.

In November, Roketsan and the Azerbaijani ministry signed a deal on the same project to produce 107 and 122-mm missiles.

In a separate development, another Turkish company, Otokar, has started to implement a $23m contract for the export to Azerbaijan of Cobra light armoured vehicles and Land Rover Defender vehicles, manufacture under licence from Land Rover UK, APA reported, quoting the Turkish National Defence Ministry.
