A delegation of United Arab Emirates government officials is in Ankara to discuss possible cooperation with Turkey’s defense industries, according to a Turkish official.

The visit comes less than two weeks after UAE de facto ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan visited the Turkish capital and officials unveiled a $10 billion fund to support UAE investments in Turkey.
