Turkey signs missile accord with Paris and Rome

Turkey on Wednesday signed a letter of intent opening the way to Ankara buying ground to air missiles from a French-Italian consortium.

The letter signed by the Turkish, French and Italian defence ministers allows the Eurosam consortium to "analyse and define the needs" of the Turkish military, a French source told AFP.

"This kind of operation is the best way to make sure we have the capabilities different nations need and it's a good way also to make sure that when we have new capabilities they can be fully integrated into air defence systems."

The letter signed on the sidelines of a NATO meeting in Brussels allows the three countries to "show their interest in cooperating in the domain of anti-aircraft defence and surface-to-air missiles", the French source said.

Eurosam air defence systems are already used by the French and Italian militaries and Rome even deployed some for a time in Turkey to help intercept missiles fired from Syria.
