ANKARA: Gulf Arab state Qatar is considering investing in Turkey's Afsin-Elbistan coal-fired power plant project, which the United Arab Emirates dropped out of earlier this year, Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said on Thursday.

"We see that Qatar has intentions about this. We have held very good meetings," Yildiz told CNN Turk television, referring to his and Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's meetings in Doha on Wednesday.

Yildiz said Turkey and Qatar could sign an agreement over the investment in the next 2-3 months. (Reuters)
