The Akkuyu nuclear power plant will boast 4 reactors, each with a capacity of 1,200 megawatts, and will be built by Rosatom.
Putin and Erdogan expressed their satisfaction on energy cooperation between the 2 countries, said the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

The 2 leaders also agreed to meet face-to-face at BRICS Summit in Johannesburg which will be held in the end of July, sources added.
