MINSK, 5 June (BelTA) – Discrimination on behalf of some countries in relation to other countries on issues concerning the development of nuclear energy is a negative factor, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said after the meeting with Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko on 5 June, BelTA informs.
“We reject negative discrimination [on issues concerning the development nuclear energy],” the head of government said. He added that Belarus and Hungary agreed on close technical cooperation in the nuclear energy sector. “We are watching over the project to build the nuclear power plant in Ostrovets because the project to build our own nuclear power plant is similar. I think that we can share experience and knowledge with each other,” he noted.
Hungary is currently implementing a project to erect two power generating units of the Paks nuclear power plant together with the Russian side. The Hungarian project is similar to the Belarusian one.
