Putin made the remarks while holding a press conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Tuesday.
Erdogan told the news conference Turkey may cooperate with Russian Federation on defense projects besides the S-400 missile defense system which Moscow has agreed to supply to Ankara.

Speaking at a later news conference with Putin, Erdogan said the cost of the project may exceed the planned $20 billion for the 4,800 megawatt (MW) plant, part of Erdogan's "2023 vision" marking 100 years since the founding of modern Turkey and meant to reduce Turkey's dependence on energy imports.
In addition, government calculations expect the power plant to cover 10 percent of the country's electricity needs when it reaches peak performance.

Russian Federation and Turkey are also building the TurkStream gas pipeline under the Black Sea that will allow Moscow to pump gas to Europe avoiding Ukraine and increase Turkey's importance as a transit hub.
