ANKARA (Sputnik) - Turkey signed its first-ever agreement on the supply of its drones to a NATO country, Poland, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at a joint press conference with his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda, who is now in Ankara on an official visit.

Polish Defence Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said earlier that Warsaw was buying 24 unmanned aerial vehicles Bayraktar from Turkey.

"We are among the 3-4 countries in the world that produce the best drones. We are proud to share this experience and capabilities with our NATO ally Poland. Today, for the first time in history, we signed an agreement under which Turkey will sell UAVs to the country, which is part of NATO," Erdogan said.
