Ankara threatens to build nuke plant in occupied part of Cyprus

According to the English-speaking service of the Turkish daily "Hurriyet Daily News”, Ankara’s energy plans include the construction of a Russian-type nuclear plant in the Turkish-occupied northern part of Cyprus. The report apparently cites a board member of the country's chamber of mechanical engineers who reveals that the general plan provides for the construction of a nuclear plant in occupied northern Cyprus or laying underwater cables from Turkey. 

The newspaper published statements by Haluk Direskeneli, a board member of the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers and head of its energy committee, who said that "Russia's barge-mounted nuclear power plant might be built in northern Cyprus," adding that such a facility would generate electricity "not only for the Turkish part (of the divided island), but also the Greek part."
