ANKARA, November 18 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov arrived in Turkey on Tuesday on a two-day official visit.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, Serdyukov will discuss with his Turkish counterpart, Vecdi Gonul, issues of bilateral military-technical cooperation, joint efforts to fight terrorism, stability in the Black Sea region, and European security.

Russia established military-technical ties with Turkey, which has the second largest army among NATO members, in 1992.

In 2001, Russia and Turkey set up a joint commission on military-technical cooperation.

Russia's navy regularly participates in the Turkey-led counterterrorist operation Black Sea Harmony in the Black Sea.

Turkey is currently negotiating a $1-billion deal with four countries - Russia, the United States, China and Israel - to buy eight advanced missile defense systems.
