Turkiye, Azerbaijan to cooperate on space, technology: Turkish minister


Turkiye and Azerbaijan are set to sign several agreements that will cover space, technology and industry areas, the Turkish industry and technology minister said on Friday. 

Mustafa Varank spoke to Anadolu Agency on the sidelines of Teknofest Azerbaijan, the first foreign edition of the leading Turkish aviation, space and technology festival, which is currently underway in Baku.

The minister said the two countries will sign different agreements including one between the Turkish Space Agency and Azerbaijan Space Agency, which will enable the two countries to act together, especially in the field of satellites.

The two countries, which have deep economic links, also aim to mutually establish a technopark, Varank said at the event, which was first held in 2018.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is expected to arrive in Baku on Saturday and visit the venue with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev.
