ALANYA, December 1. /TASS/. Turkey confirmed that Akkuyu NPP project will be given the official status of a strategic investment, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday after a meeting with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu.

"We favorably evaluated preparatory work for construction of a nuclear power plant at the Akkuyu site in Turkey by Russian specialists. Our partners have confirmed that this project will receive the official status of a strategic investment," Lavrov said.

The intergovernmental Russian-Turkish agreement on construction of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant was signed on May 12, 2010. This project includes construction of four power units (VVER-1200) with a capacity of 1.2 GW each in accordance with the Russian project "NPP-2006".

Due to tensions in Russian-Turkish relations, the future of Akkuyu NPP project was under question for some time. Western media, citing sources in the Turkish government, reported earlier that the project was suspended. However, the Turkish side has officially denied this information.
