ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey will sell four corvette ships to Pakistan’s navy, Defence Minister Nurettin Canikli was quoted as saying by state-run Anadolu agency on Thursday.

Turkey said last year it signed a memorandum of understanding for the sale, and Canikli said the tender was now finalised, describing it as Turkey’s biggest single military export deal and “a very important day” for the defence industry.
