Azerbaijan, Baku, September 30 /Trend, R.Hafizoglu/
Chinese company CPMIEC, which won a tender in Turkey for the creation of long range missiles, was included on a U.S' 'black list', CNN Turk reported on Monday.
According to CNN Turk, the CPMIEC Company was included on the list due to its activity in Iran, North Korea and Syria.
It was announced at September 2013, at a meeting of the Executive Committee of Turkey's Defence Industry, that the Chinese company CPMIEC won the tender for creation of long range missiles in the country.
It was reported that the missiles will be created by the Chinese company in cooperation with Turkish producers.
It was also said that the project of the Chinese "CPMIEC", which envisages the creation of FD-2000 missiles technically leaves the Russian, American, and French and Italian companies' projects behind.
A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Turkish Defense Industry was chaired by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan with the participation of head of the Turkish General Staff Necdet Ozel, Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz and Deputy Minister of Defense Industry Murad Bayar.
The Turkish defense industry has recently focused on developing and manufacturing its own products. Turkey managed to achieve a self-sufficiency level at 54 percent in the defense industry.
