"We intend to develop cooperation in the defense industry," Erdogan said, adding that he hoped that "the Moscow-Ankara friendship axis will be restored."

As First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Economic Policy, Innovations and Entrepreneurship Mikhail Yemelyanov said, he hoped that the talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan would stimulate cooperation between the two countries on the arms market.

"I hope that cooperation between Russia and Turkey will liven up on the arms market. In the early 1990s, Turkey purchased military hardware from Russia and then ceased to do it," Yemelyanov told TASS, commenting on the meeting between the Russian and Turkish presidents in St. Petersburg.
