    Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Işık announced on Friday that Turkey has signed an agreement with Italian-French consortium Eurosam to develop its national missile defense system.

    "I am happy to announce that this afternoon Turkey has signed a cooperation agreement with Italian-French consortium Eurosam to produce missile defense systems," the minister said, speaking at a reception for Bastille Day at the French embassy in Ankara.

    According to the deal, Turksh companies and Eurosam will work together to produce SAMP/T Aster 30 long-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems, which is already in use in several NATO member countries.

    The minister described the move as one of the most concrete developments of Turkey's alliance within the defense industry.

    On July 4, Işık had announced that Ankara and Moscow agreed on the "technical issues" relating to the purchase of a Russian missile system.

    "All technical issues, both by the Russian side and the Turkish side, are over," Isik said in an interview with broadcaster TRT Haber. "Now it is time for the final decision.

    "Now, we continue work on the financial aspects. I think we will bring this to a close in the coming days."

    Following Isşık's remarks, Russian presidential aide Vladimir Kozhin said last week that Moscow and Ankara had agreed on the delivery of S-400 mobile systems but he added that the Kremlin had not approved a loan for the deal.

    He said that Russia saw "no obstacles" to providing missiles to a NATO member.

    Contract signed between Eurosam-Roketsan-Aselsan to jointly develop a next generation air and ballistic missile defence system

    Eurosam Press Release

    Turkey has awarded Eurosam, Aselsan and Roketsan a contract for the definition study of the future Turkish Long Range Air and Missile Defence System. The contract award was made during the meeting of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and President Emmanuel Macron today in Paris.

    Scheduled to last 18 months, this definition study aims at preparing the development and production contract for the future system meeting the operational requirements of the Turkish Air Force. The contract was awarded by the SSM (the Undersecretariat for Defence Industries), which is responsible for acquisitions under the President of Republic of Turkey, jointly to Turkish companies Aselsan and Roketsan, and to the Franco-Italian consortium Eurosam; backed by its two shareholders MBDA and Thales.

    The contract follows on from the Heads of Agreement signed by the Industry on 14 July 2017 and the Letter Of Intent signed by the French, Italian and Turkish Defence Ministers on 8 November 2017.

    This study paves the way for the launch of a three-country joint Long Range Air and Missile Defence Program. The future system will be ready by the middle of the next decade with a state-of-the-art military capability designed to counter the most challenging threats (stealth aircraft, UAVs, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles). The system is expected to meet three countries’ basic operational needs and it will guarantee Turkey has full employment autonomy and will allow a sovereign choice of integration level within NATO. The joint development activity is expected to support Turkey’s indigeneous air and missile development programme in addition to opening up prospects for exports and longer-term co-operation of Turkey, Italy and France.

    At the signing ceremony of this definition study contract, Abdoulaye Samba, Eurosam Managing Director, stated: « Eurosam has been fully dedicated to air and missile defence since its inception in 1989 and has acquired world-class expertise as well as a unique experience of co-operation in this strategic and eminently sovereign domain. Today, we are proud to provide this know-how to the co-operation between France and Italy with their Turkish ally within NATO. I am confident that this co-operation will also last several decades and will contribute to bringing our countries closer on a strategic level, as it has been the case for the last thirty years with France and Italy. «
