Turkey has expressed interest in the Ukrainian An-178 aircraft, which was presented at the Teknofest 2019 exhibition in Istanbul, and praised cooperation with Ukraine in the aviation industry.

This was discussed during a meeting between Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu on September 21, the press service of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry reported.

“An-178 is a very good aircraft. In addition, our Mi-17 helicopters [transport version of Mi-8] are modernized in Ukraine, six of which we have already received. For us, this is an example of a very successful cooperation with you,” Soylu said.
