"We have decided with President Erdoğan in our meeting to speed up the delivery of the S-400 systems", Putin said, referring to the purchase that has raised concerns among Turkey's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners.
Russian Federation and Iran have given crucial military and diplomatic backing to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government throughout the war, which began with a government crackdown on protesters and has killed hundreds of thousands of people.
On Tuesday, April 3, Putin held talks in Ankara with his Turkish counterpart RecepErdogan.
Turkey was furious at United States support for such groups and has since launched an all-out offensive against them, starting in Afrin province. The YPG is the Syrian affiliate of the PKK, a US- and Turkey-designated terror group which has been fighting the Turkish state for more than 30 years.
"Of course, we discussed the cooperation between Russian Federation and Turkey in the defence industry. We will accelerate the process", the Russian President added.
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.

The Turkish president also said that Turkey and Russian Federation share common concerns regarding the Syrian crisis and have agreed that terror groups such as YPG and Daesh have no future in the country. "They'll never inter operate", US Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters.
In December, they finalized a deal for Turkey to purchase Russia's long-range S-400 missile defense system, raising eyebrows among some of Turkey's fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members. What were we supposed to do, wait for you? As a raft of countries join together to punish Moscow, Erdogan says Ankara will not take similar measures and that the charge is "based on allegation".
"This is completely a new step, a new step towards the development of Turkey's economy", the Russian president said.
In February 2017 Putin gives the green light for the construction of the TurkStream pipeline between Russian Federation and Turkey which will eventually pump gas to the European Union.
