Erdogan, Putin break ground for nuclear power plant


Putin said it was chose to expedite the deliveries of S-400 missile defense systems to Turkey.

Yuri Ushakov, Russia's presidential aide, told national media on Monday that Moscow will exert every effort for completing the delivery of air defence systems S-400 to Turkey by 2020.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkey's Tayyip Erdogan marked the start to construction, watching by video link from Ankara.

"We are witnessing a historic moment in terms of the development of our country and the cooperation with Russian Federation on energy", Erdogan said, adding that Turkey is determined to boost cooperation with Russian Federation on regional issues.

Energy Minister of Turkey, Berat Albayrak, said that the Turkish president played the most important role in realising this dream, adding that this strong cooperation would be the most important in terms of future steps between the two countries.

The Akkuyu power station - a project costing over $20 billion (16 billion euros) and greatly disliked by environmentalists - was already launched once before in February 2015 but then put on hold due to the row over the downed Russian plane.

Key Syrian regime backers Russian Federation and Iran have joined forces with rebel-supporting Turkey to push forward a peace process but also to ensure influence in Syria once the conflict ends.

The Akkuyu NPP will produce 35 billion kilowatts of electricity at full capacity, which will meet about 10 percent of Turkey's electricity needs.

"We are aiming in 2023, at the 100 years of our Republic, to be among the top 10 economies in the world".

According to Russian press reports, Turkey has also been hugely interested in a technology transfer and even joint production of the S-400s with Russia, a prospect that has been resisted by some in the Moscow security services.

The Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant in Turkey's southern Mersin province will be built with an estimated cost of 20 billion US dollars and is due to be launched in 2023.
