TEMPO.CO, JakartaDefense Minister Prabowo Subianto reportedly had yet another working visit to Turkey. He departed there to discuss the follow-up planned cooperation between Indonesia and the Turkish government.

“To follow up the talks of partnership in the defense industry between Turkey and Indonesia,” said the Defense Ministry spokesman Dahnil Anzar Simanjuntak when contacted on Thursday, July 23.
