Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Tuesday met with Latvia’s visiting Deputy Prime Minister Artis Pabriks to discuss bilateral issues and defense cooperation.

On Twitter, Cavusoglu posted a photo from their meeting in the Turkish capital Ankara, saying that they "discussed our relations and cooperation opportunities in the defense industry" with Pabriks, who also serves as Latvia's defense minister.

"We will develop our cooperation with Latvia, our 2nd NATO Ally that shows interest in our UAV technology," Cavusoglu wrote.

Last month Warsaw announced it would purchase 24 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from Turkey, citing their proven “striking force” in recent conflicts, making Poland the first NATO ally to buy the Turkish UAVs.

Cavusoglu also had separate meetings with Maria Mezentseva, the head of Ukraine’s delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), and Ahliman Amiraslanov, the head of the Azerbaijan-Turkey Interparliamentary Friendship Group, along with a delegation.

No details of those meetings were given.
