Turkey will sell four corvette ships to Pakistan's navy, Defence Minister Nurettin Canikli said on Thursday.
"A tender opened by the Pakistan Navy to supply four corvettes has just been concluded and Turkey has won the tender," Canikli told reporters during an official visit to Montenegro.
He described the deal as "the largest defence export of Turkey in one agreement," while not giving any financial details about the agreement.
Turkey said last year it signed a memorandum of understanding for the sale, and Canikli said the tender was now finalised, describing it as Turkey's biggest single military export deal and "a very important day" for the defence industry.
Canikli also said the parties decided to build two of the corvettes in Istanbul Shipyard and other two in Pakistan’s southern port city of Karachi.
On Wednesday, Turkey and Ukraine signed a memorandum of understanding stating that the latter would receive deliveries of unmanned aircraft systems from the former, the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council press service said.
