Turkey Should Reconsider Nuclear Plans, Greek President Says

Greek President Karolos Papoulias urged neighboring Turkey to reconsider plans to build atomic power stations after a March 11 earthquake and tsunami damaged Japan’s Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant.

“It’s impossible at this time, when we have this disaster at the nuclear reactors in Japan that has shocked us all, that Turkey should want to build in an earthquake zone,” Papoulias said during a visit to a satellite station, according to an e-mailed transcript of his comments from his office in Athens.
