Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has inaugurated the construction of a warship for Pakistan.
According to Turkish media, the 5th F515 Free Gate, built under the Milgem project, was launched at the Istanbul Dark Yard Headquarters and attended the launch ceremony of the third ship under the Pakistan Milgem Corvette project.
Speaking on the occasion, the Turkish President said that Pakistan and Turkey are located in two of the most difficult regions and both face similar challenges. The example of Pak-Turkish friendship is given in the world. They are with each other in difficult situations. In any case, Turkey will meet Pakistan’s defense needs.
Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey is forced to maintain its power at the highest level to guarantee national security and protect the rights of its friends.
He said that becoming militarily, economically, and diplomatically strong was a priority for Turkey as it was not a priority, as nations that were not self-sufficient in defense and technology could not look to their future with confidence.
