The Turkish defense minister and his Kosovar counterpart met in the capital Ankara, Turkey's National Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.

In a statement, the ministry said Hulusi Akar and Anton Quni, accompanied by their respective delegations, discussed bilateral relations, cooperation in defense industry and the regional security issues.

Stressing the importance of friendship between the two countries, Akar said the good relations should be further developed, adding there must be cooperation in fight against the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO).

FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Turkey accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.
