Turkey expects nuclear power plant agreement with KEPCO by month's end
Turkey, which is in talks with South Korea's state-controlled utility KEPCO to build a nuclear power plant, expects an agreement by the end of this month, Energy and Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz said yesterday. Taner Yıldız, however, said, "There are four or five major topics. We have not reached an agreement on some of them yet. Maybe we cannot agree at the end." Turkish and South Korean officials got together last week in Ankara and they will have one more meeting next week as part of ongoing negotiations aiming to build a nuclear power plant in northern province of Sinop on the Black Sea coast. Turkey wants to build two nuclear plants, one in the northern coast and the other in Akkuyu town on southern coast of the country.
