Turkey resumes talks with Japanese firms on nuclear plant construction

Turkey resumed discussing a potential with Toshiba and TEPCO to build the country's second nuclear plant in Sinop.


The talks were temporarily put on hold due to the massive earthquake that hit Japan in March, and stopped operations at the Tepco-run Fukushima nuclear plant.

Last year Turkey also signed an agreement with Russia to construct its first nuclear power plant in Akkuyu at an estimated cost of $20bn.

Russia-based Rosatom will start the construction in 2013 and the first unit is expected to commence operations by 2018.
