Turkey calls Toshiba for negotiation to build a nuclear plant

Turkey will invite Japanese group Toshiba to discuss building a nuclear plant  after the  negotiations with  South Koreans failed, said Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz.

Taner Yildiz’s statement comes after a meeting of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak which failed to resolve differences on the construction of a nuclear plant in northern Turkey, which will cost about 20 billion dollars (14, 6 billion).
“We were unable to agree on certain issues. Have been proposed several conditions improved and said that we will evaluate. But we will start talks with other countries. You must enter a process of advanced negotiations,” the Turkish minister said, adding that among the potential partners may include U.S. and European countries.

In March, Turkey and South Korea have signed a preliminary agreement on the construction of a nuclear plant in Sinop.
In May, Turkey signed a 20 billion dollar deal with Russia to build a nuclear plant in Akkuyu.

Turkey’s central objectives are to build at least two regions by 2023, to avoid lack of electricity and dependence on foreign supplies.

Ankara wanted to build a plant in Akkuyu abandoned in 2000, in the context of financial crisis
and because of protests by environmentalists. A call to Toshiba will be made next week.
