Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Vladimir Putin have launched the construction of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant earlier in the day.
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.
'We are also in close cooperation with Russian Federation to end as soon as possible the terror threat and clashes in Syria, ' Erdogan said.
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. "In terms of shortening the delivery schedule, we have done this at the request of our Turkish friends and partners". When Akkuyu starts operating with all its reactors we will cover 10% of our country's electrical needs.
Erdogan said that Turkish energy sector - which is still predominantly based on petroleum, natural gas and coal- would be healthier along with the Akkuyu NPP, Anadolu Agency reports.
The Akkuy nuclear power plant in Mersin County is being built together with the Russian company Rosatom and will have four power units with a capacity of 1200 megawatts. The project is estimated to cost $20 billion.
