Turkey's defence industry body on Tuesday announced Ankara was determined to continue its policies to ensure that the Turkish defence industry operates fully independently.


According to a statement by the Communications Directorate, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan headed a meeting of the Defence Industry Executive Committee of Turkey that focussed on a variety of issues, including sectoral developments and indigenous defence systems used by the Turkish military.

The statement said indigenous military hardware developed, designed, and produced by Turkey proved their worth amid cross-border and domestic counter-terror operations, once again underlining the significance of locally made defence systems.

It further noted that Turkish authorities did not allow the COVID-19 pandemic to disrupt critical defence industry projects and that operations would continue in the post-virus period.
