Turkey sacks defence official involved in China missile talks

Published: 03.28.14, 09:52 / Israel News

Turkey has removed Murad Bayar, Defense Ministry undersecretary for the state-run defence industries, from his post with immediate effect, the official gazette showed on Thursday.


The ministry did not give a reason for the decision. Bayar had been influential in Turkey's negotiations with China over the procurement of a missile defence system.


Turkey's NATO allies voiced concern when it said in September it had chosen China's FD-2000 missile defence system over rival offers from the Franco/Italian Eurosam SAMP/T and US-listed Raytheon Co. It said China had offered the most competitive terms and would allow co-production in Turkey. (Reuters)
