The prospects of joint Russian-Turkish projects, including the construction of a nuclear power plant in Turkey, cannot be currently ascertained without careful analysis following recent developments in bilateral ties, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday.

Moscow Expects Apology From Ankara for Downing Su-24 Jet Over Syria
MOSCOW (Sputnik) Earlier in the day, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Moscow would seriously review its relations with Ankara and reassess bilateral agreements after the downing Tuesday of a Russian Su-24 Fencer bomber, by the Turkish Air Force, in Syrian airspace.

"At the moment I will not estimate these prospects… Surely, taking into consideration the current situation everything will be analyzed very thoroughly," Peskov said.

Russia and Turkey signed an agreement in 2010 to construct and operate Turkey’s first nuclear power plant at the Akkuyu site in the southern province of Mersin.

Earlier in November, Turkish Energy Ministry's deputy undersecretary said that the first reactor of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant should start operating no later than 2022.
