Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan are intensifying military-technical cooperation. We are interested in developing contacts both on bilateral and multilateral levels as part of the Turkic-speaking countries, in the framework of the Customs Union and other organizations, this has been said in Baku by the military attache of the Embassy of Kazakhstan in Azerbaijan Almaz Bazarbayev.
In particular, according to A.Bazarbayev, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan intend to develop cooperation in the field of maritime security which is now not up to standard. The states are preparing relevant documents on the issue.
In addition, in late May, Baku is expected to be visited by representatives of the Kazakh Ministry of Defense and ‘Kazakhstan Engineering' defense company, who will hold talks on the development of bilateral military-technical cooperation.
According to the military attache, Azerbaijan is negotiating purchase of Eurocopter EC145 helicopters of Kazakhstani-European production.
