The decision paves the way for a tender process in the coming days.
Turkey is expected to launch a tender for the nuclear power plant within nine days, delayed from the original date of Feb. 21.
The project is one of several ways in which the government plans to boost energy production to keep pace with rapidly growing demand against a background of strong economic growth.
The government has identified Sinop on the Black Sea as a possible site for a nuclear plant. As license work on that has not been completed, the site of Akkuyu at Mersin on the Mediterranean, which already has a license, could be chosen.
Turkey has conducted legal work on building three nuclear power plants with a total capacity of 5,000 megawatts.
