Sept. 5, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—As part of their bilateral discussions in Sochi, Presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced plans for Russia to build a second nuclear plant in the Turkish Black Sea city of Sinop: “I especially want to mention the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant. As you know, construction is underway. I would like to highlight the second step in this area: in Türkiye, in the city of Sinop, we discussed the construction of a second nuclear power plant with my dear friend. With this step, Türkiye will undoubtedly break new ground,” said Erdogan in closing his remarks at their joint press conference yesterday.
