Japan to sign nuclear deal with Turkey

Japan has struck a deal estimated to be worth more than $20 billion (£12.86bn) to build a new nuclear power station in Turkey.

Reports claim the Turkish Government will sign an agreement later today with the Japanese Government. The nuclear plant in the northern city of Sinop in the Black Sea is expected to produce 4.5 million kilowatts of electricity, with construction to start in 2017.
