Erdogan, Putin mark start of work on Turkey's first nuclear power 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.

The sides were expected to discuss economic issues, the implementation of strategic projects such as the Akkuyu nuclear power plant as well as the delivery of Russian S-400 air defense systems to Turkey.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will join Erdogan and Putin for a three-way summit on Syria in Ankara on Wednesday.

At present, there are 450 nuclear power plants in 31 countries, while 55 plants are under construction around the world.

The three countries are sponsoring a series of efforts in a bid to end the seven-year war.

"I wish that all our meetings benefit the whole of our region", Erdogan said at a meeting of the High-Level Cooperation Council, which takes place in Ankara under the chairmanship of the Presidents of Russian Federation and Turkey.

"In the name of God!"

Speaking at a later news conference with Putin, Erdogan said the cost of the project may exceed the planned $20 billion for the 4,800 megawatt (MW) plant, part of Erdogan's "2023 vision" marking 100 years since the founding of modern Turkey and meant to reduce Turkey's dependence on energy imports.

Russian Federation calls off search for victims of mall fire
Senior regional official Vladimir Chernov said the fire may have started in the children's trampoline room. Relatives of victims say they have compiled a list of 85 people, majority children, who are still missing.

Putin asserted that Russian partners would encourage Turkey's small- and medium-scale companies to participate in this project. 'This marks a new stage in the development of Turkey's economy'.

Once completed the power station will provide 10 percent of the electricity needs of Turkey, which has few energy resources of its own.

Russian Federation and Turkey are also building the TurkStream gas pipeline under the Black Sea that will allow Moscow to pump gas to Europe avoiding Ukraine and increase Turkey's importance as a transit hub.

Erdogan indicated that Turkey was in no mood to listen to criticism from the West over the purchase of the S-400 systems, saying "this issue is now closed".

The deal has been valued at about $2bn according to reports.
