Turkey, Russia reach deal resolving nuclear plant dispute

TEHRAN, Sep. 18 (MNA) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey and Russia had reached a deal resolving a dispute over a nuclear power plant being built at Akkuyu in southern Turkey.

"A deal has been reached regarding Akkuyu," Erdogan was quoted as telling reporters after a visit to Uzbekistan.

Two sources had told Reuters on Friday that Turkish contractor IC Ictas had re-captured the deal to build the plant run by Russia's Rosatom. Last month, the Russian state nuclear energy company terminated a contract with IC Ictas over what it called "numerous violations".
