Turkey is going nuclear by 2023: Will it succeed?

Fingers crossed, the decades-long ambition to have Turkey’s first nuclear energy capability (at least one of the planned four nuclear reactors) is finally to become a reality by 2023 thanks to the Mersin Akkuyu project, developed jointly with Russia’s Rosatom. Turkey has a long-standing dream of going nuclear since the 1960s, having ventured five different attempts, with almost all Western companies including the Americans, Canadians, French, German and Japanese. None of these initiatives - except the one now in progress with the Russians - has resulted in any tangible progress for political and economic reasons.
