Lukashenka: Belarus ready to organise a co-production of drones with Turkmenistan

Belarus is ready not only to supply unmanned aerial vehicles to Turkmenistan, but also to organise a co-production, Belarusian President Aliaksandr Lukashenka said in Minsk on Wednesday.

“The Belarusian National Academy of Sciences is negotiating the possibility of delivering multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicles to Turkmenistan. We are ready not only to supply, but in the long term to organize co-production of drones in Turkmenistan,” Lukashenka said at the meeting with his Turkmen counterpart Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov.

The first Belarusian drone got off the ground in 2012.

Lukashenka also offered to supply Turkmenistan with Belarusian harvesters, passenger buses, and freight wagons, state-owned news agency BelTA reports. New prospects for cooperation are also emerging in the mining and chemical industries, the transport and logistics sector, housing construction, and in the supply of building materials to Turkmenistan.

Berdymukhamedov arrived in Minsk for a two-day official visit.
