Russian President Vladimir Putin may visit Turkey on April 27 for the opening of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant, which was built by Rosatom.
This was stated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in an interview with several Turkish media.
Erdogan said that Turkey will open its first nuclear power plant on April 27. According to him, the President of Russia may come to the ceremony, as "Rosatom" participated in the construction. The option that Putin will participate in the event online is also being considered.
"On April 27, maybe Putin will come, or we will contact together through the online system, and we will take the first step of Akkuyu with God's help," Erdogan said.
As you know, the International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin on charges of illegal deportation of Ukrainian children. However, Putin is not at risk of arrest in Turkey, as the country has not ratified the Rome Statute, which obliges the Russian president to be detained.
On Saturday, the Kremlin reported that Putin and Erdogan during a telephone conversation discussed the implementation of joint strategic projects in the energy sector, including the construction of the Akkuyu NPP.
