Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan sign defense accord
Turkish Chief of Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar signed a defense agreement with Georgian and Azerbaijani defense chiefs on Oct. 17.
Akar met Azerbaijan’s Defense Minister Gen. Zakir Hasanov and Georgian Chief of Staff Gen. Vladimir Cachibaia in Tbilisi, the Turkish Armed Forces said in a statement on its website.
“In this meeting between the three countries, we will discuss military and defense industry cooperation,” Akar told reporters before the three-hour meeting.
Regional developments and the fight against terrorism were also discussed. In June, the militaries of the three nations held joint exercises, dubbed Caucasian Eagle, in Georgia.
