China also offers financing without Treasury guarantee and this is an important advantage, Yildiz added. Turkey has been in talks with Canada, China, Japan and South Korea regarding the construction of the second nuclear plant. Russia will build Turkeys planned first nuclear power plant at Akkuyu on the Mediterranean. The Turkish government is expected to announce its final decision on the second nuclear plant by the end of the year.
