Rosatom is holding talks of selling a 49-percent stake in the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) construction project with investors but is not in a rush to sell, Chief Executive Officer of the Russian stat-run corporation Alexei Likhachev told reporters on Monday, TASS reported.
"We are holding talks with both state-run and private Turkish companies. Yes, we are ready to sell up to 49%. It is impossible to do without the permit of the Turkish side; therefore, the government is certainly involved in these talks. We will not hasten definitely," Likhachev noted.
"We have understanding of the financial plan for 2019 and for 2020; there have been no urgent challenges related to involvement of investors so far," he added.
