President Vladimir Putin Tuesday embarked on a two-day visit to Russia's increasingly close partner Turkey to launch the construction of the country's first nuclear power plant and coordinate policy on the war in Syria. Putin was to hold an afternoon of talks with his counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan before the two leaders are joined Wednesday by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for a summit devoted to Syria.Their meeting in Ankara opened with Putin and Erdogan, via video conference, launching the construction of Turkey's first nuclear power station in the Mediterranean Mersin region, a massive project that will come online in half a decade.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 alone, has said that Ankara will not act against Moscow "based on an allegation".
