The studies regarding the tender for the construction of Turkey's first nuclear power plant are being finalized and will be presented to the Council of Ministers after the upcoming bi-elections, the energy minister said late Tuesday.
Natural gas, oil, renewable energy and energy productivity were the main issues discussed during his recent talks, he added.
The energy minister also said their aim was to complete the Nabucco pipeline project, when asked about recent developments regarding the project.
"Our aim is to complete this project. No matter where the resources are, the necessary requirements should be fulfilled if such project is a need. I believe we will complete the project either with our own resources or with the help of others," he said.
The European Union, which had earlier planned to allocate 250 million euros ($323 million) to finance the project, cut the funds to 50 million euros ($64.5 million).
The Nabucco project is seen as a rival to Russia's South Stream gas pipeline designed to annually pump 31 billion cubic meters of Central Asian and Russian gas to the Balkans and on to other European countries.
