ANKARA, Sept 10
ANKARA, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Turkey will decide this year who will build a second nuclear power plant planned for its Black Sea coast, Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said on Monday in comments broadcast on television.
Turkey has no nuclear energy plants at present but has ambitious plans to build plants over the next decade in order to reduce dependence on imported oil and gas.
The country plans to build a first nuclear plant on the Mediterranean with Russia's Rosatom.
