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.

On Wednesday, Putin, Erdogan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani are expected to hold a summit in the Turkish capital of Ankara to discuss Syria's future. All three countries are heavily involved in the war-torn Arab state and now sponsoring peace efforts to bring the conflict to an end.

The pair shook hands as they met in Ankara and then spoke to workers at the $20billion Akkuyu power station, which is being built by Russian Federation, via video link.

Albayrak noted that the Akkuyu nuclear power plant will also contribute to the development of the Turkish economy.

Mr Putin hailed the project as a symbol of growing co-operation between Russian Federation and Turkey.

"The agreement will see both parties contribute $500 million to the Fund. Investments will be made in projects that strengthen trade, economic and investment ties between Russian Federation and Turkey".

Erdogan, who in 2017 held eight face-to-face meetings with Putin and has already spoken to the Russian leader seven times by phone this year, has said that Ankara will not act against Moscow "based on an allegation".

At present, there are 450 nuclear power plants in 31 countries, while 55 plants are under construction around the world. The number of power plants under construction will be 56 with the Akkuyu NPP.
