Turkey offers Brazil manufacturing joint aircraft

Turkey has long been eager to manufacture aircraft, and with this aim, it proposed joint aircraft manufacturing with Brazil's Embraer, world's third largest aircraft maker, Turkey's transportation minister said on Thursday.

Binali Yildirim, who is accompanying Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at his visit to Brazil, said that Turkey has the necessary infrastructure to manufacture aircraft.

"Turkey must manufacture its own aircraft," Yildirim told reporters. "It is a long-overdue goal for Turkey."

Yildirim said that Erdogan was scheduled to have a meeting with Brazil's President Lula da Silva, adding that the two countries would sign a memorandum of understanding right after the meeting in case of an agreement between the two leaders.
