Turkey dismayed at lack of US partnership on second nuclear plant

 

Turkey expected to form a partnership with the United States to build Turkey’s second planned nuclear plant, Energy Minister Tamer Yıldız told daily Hürriyet in an interview published April 6.

“If I don’t build the nuclear plant with the U.S., which strategic project will I do? Will I sell tomatoes and peppers?” Yıldız said, adding that Turkey had made a proposition to the “highest officials” in Washington about participating in the tender.
