Erdogan, Putin break ground for nuclear power plant

Putin says Russia 'founding' Turkey's nuclear sector, following launch of first nuclear plant
Intensifying affronts in Syria's Afrin, Ghouta and Idlib regions have made room for Turkish President Erdogan's Operation Olive Branch to take effect and target militant Kurds (YPP), much to the dismay of the YPP-dependent United States, which is also ready to sanction Turkey if it accepts a delivery of Russian S-400 missiles.
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.
Turkey insists the Russian plane - deployed as part of Moscow's military campaign in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's fight against rebels - strayed into Turkish airspace.
Their meeting in Ankara opened with Putin and Erdogan, via video conference, talking about the construction of a nuclear power station in the Mediterranean Mersin region, a $20 billion project that will come online in half a decade.
The leaders of Turkey, Russia and Iran meet in Ankara on Wednesday to coordinate policy on the war in Syria.
"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.
In March Britain blames Russia for the poisoning on its soil of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.
Turkish-Russian relations have been increasingly well.
Akkuyu's investment is the largest foreign investment in Turkey as it exceeds Dollars 20 billion.
"The scale of this project is hard to exaggerate", Putin said at the ceremony.
"In the name of God!"
But Putin refused to discuss the issue saying "these are exclusively commercial questions" rather than political ones.
That year will mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of modern Turkey, when Erdogan says the country will be among the world's top 10 economies. Putin said it was made a decision to expedite the deliveries of S-400 missile defense systems to Turkey. When Akkuyu starts operating with all its reactors we will cover 10% of our country's electrical needs.
