Turkey to Have Nuclear Plant in 2012

Turkey Atomic Energy Agency (TAEK) President Oktay Cakiroglu has announced no trace of radioactivity has been found in Turkey due to the effects of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster that occurred on 26 April 1986.

Sharing their intentions, he confirmed that if the political will decide that nuclear energy is safe and sound, the Agency plans to establish a nuclear plant in 2012, 2014, and 2017.

Turkey is ranked 16th among 18 countries that were harmed by the Chernobyle disaster and in order to determe the possible negative effects, detectors have planted in some of Turkey's Eastern provinces, the Agency President added.

"Nuclear energy is the cheapest energy in the long run," he said, "Feasibility works are under way for eight plants that are planned to be established in Turkey."

Why don't you give your opinion? All you do, it seems, is post news but never with your opinion. How come?

Just because I'm a journalist and I want to inform people, not to impose my own opinion. If they like, they may leave their own opinions in the comments section, just as you're doing. Well, after all, why do you write anonymously? ;-)
