Turkey's energy minister has said the country would choose by the end of this year from among foreign bidders for the construction of a nuclear power plant on its Black Sea coast.
"We maintain our resolve over nuclear energy. And we will decide on the second nuclear power plant by the end of the year," Taner Yildiz told reporters during a meeting in Ankara on Monday with a group of Turkish students who would participate in a training program in nuclear engineering in Russia.
Turkey had already sealed an agreement with Russia for the construction of the country's first nuke plant in the Akkuyu reigon of the Mediterranean port city of Mersin.
Russia's state nuclear company Atomstroiexport is expected to begin in 2013 the construction of four nuclear reactors with a total capacity of 4,800 megawatts.
Possible partners for the second nuke plant includes South Korea, Japan and China.
