Turkey sees no problem in nuke deal with S.Korea

The Turkish energy minister said on Thursday that he did not think there would be any problems with a nuclear energy agreement with South Korea.

Turkey's Energy & Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz said that negotiations with South Korea on construction of a nuclear power plant in the northern Turkish province of Sinop were positive.

"There will not be any problems in signing an agreement," Yildiz said during his meeting with South Korean Minister of Knowledge Economy Kyung-hwan Choi in Ankara.

Yildiz said Turkey's President Abdullah Gul would visit South Korea in the following week, and hoped to make progress in nuclear energy agreement before that visit.

Also speaking in the meeting, Choi said South Korea would work to construct the most secure and lucrative nuclear power plant in Sinop.
