The Metsamor nuclear power plant in Armenia is outdated and should be urgently closed down, Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yıldız has said, re-voicing concerns about the safety of the plant.

(dpa) - Eineinhalb Jahre nach der Atomkatastrophe in Fukushima hat Japan den Atomausstieg eingeleitet. Auf einem Ministertreffen sei am Freitag die Entscheidung gefällt worden, in den2030er Jahren aus der Atomenergie auszusteigen, berichteten japanische Medien. Japan folgt damit dem Beispiel Deutschlands.
