Turkey says it's ready to help Ukraine in training the crew of the only Ukraine's submarine Zaporizhzhia, reported Ukrainian defense minister Mikhail Yezhel.

According to the minister, he will meet with Turkish counterpart during the visit to Albania.

"We're going to discuss issues of air information exchange and military technical cooperation with Turkish defense minister. I think we should also deliberate the possibility of training of our submarine's crew. By the way, that was Turkey who agreed to help us in this matter", underlined the minister.

Ukrainian defense minister Mikhail Yezhel visits Tirana (Albania) and attends annual session of the Southeast Europe Defense Ministerial.

Previously, Mr. Yezhel had spoken for an idea to revive Ukrainian submarine fleet and in this context to commission submarine Zaporizhzhia after overhaul.

Zaporizhzhia is former Soviet Project 641 diesel electric submarine. She was built in Leningrad, and launched on May 29, 1970. The sub had been in service in Soviet Navy. Since partition of Soviet Black Sea Fleet in 1997, Zaporizhzhia is the only Ukraine's submarine. The sub is under patronage of Zaporozhye region, Ukraine. As of 2010, Zaporizhzhia is under repairs.
