Turkey and Bahrain have reached an agreement on bilateral cooperation in arms industry in Manama, the first destination in Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s tour of Persian Gulf states.

On Sunday, Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik and his Bahraini counterpart, Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Khalifah, inked the memorandum of understanding in the presence of Erdogan and Bahrain’s monarch Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah, according to the official Bahrain News Agency.

Reports said Ankara and Manama also signed a number of other agreements concerning visa fee exemptions and education.

Erdogan and his delegation will next travel to Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The tour’s much-expected focus rests on regional, political, security and economic issues.

Bahrain has been heavy-handedly muffling popular anti-regime protests across the kingdom since 2011.
