South Africa will only carry out a nuclear agreement if it is affordable and in line with procurement policies, energy minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson told parliament on Tuesday.

"We are committed to a thorough cost-benefit analysis and the cost-benefit analysis is part of the procurement process. We are not going to compromise our country in any way," she said.
