Last week the media payed a lot of attention to the talks between the Russian and Turkish Presidents, which took place in St. Petersburg on Tuesday. It was the first meeting between Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan after the Russian jet shootdown near the Syrian border. Both parties expressed their intentions to restore bilateral relations and to ensure that economic and trade ties reach the level that had existed before the infamous tragedy. The warming in the relations paves the way for progress in building the first nuclear power plant in Turkey and an ambitious natural gas pipeline project.
