MINSK, 5 December (BelTA) – Belarusian specialists may participate in the construction of a nuclear power plant in Russia's Kursk Oblast in the future. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the relevant suggestion as he met with Kursk Oblast Governor Alexander Mikhailov on 5 December, BelTA has learned.
The head of state said: “I was pleasantly surprised by the proposal of our specialists, who say that literally next year or the year after the next one they will be able to participate in the construction of your nuclear power plant. If necessary, we are ready to cooperate with Russians in this field.”
Alexander Lukashenko remarked that there was a similar agreement with Rosatom. Belarusian specialists are supposed to learn how to perform the main operations required to build a nuclear power plant in order to participate in similar projects in Russia and other countries.
The head of state stressed that the two countries already had experience of working together as part of the project to build the nuclear power plant in Belarus. He went on saying that the specialists, who will no longer be required after the Belarusian nuclear power plant is ready, will always be in demand. “Very responsible subject matter specialists are needed for such projects,” he said.More about President
