Belarus, Hungary discuss cooperation in nuclear energy

MINSK, 29 May (BelTA) - Belarus-Hungary cooperation in nuclear energy was discussed during a meeting of Belarusian Foreign Minister Sergei Aleinik, Energy Minister Viktor Karankevich and Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto and delegations from both countries in Minsk on 29 May, BelTA has learned.

As Viktor Karankevich noted, only two months have passed since his previous meeting with Peter Szijjarto in Sochi. "During this time, Belarusian and Hungarian specialists have done a lot of work to promote bilateral mutually beneficial cooperation in areas of mutual interest," the minister said.

The meeting was preceded by the talks between the foreign ministers and as well as a meeting of the Belarusian-Hungarian intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation.

In the morning, the Energy Ministry signed a roadmap for cooperation between the nuclear power plants in Belarus and Hungary. It defines the main areas of joint work of Belarusian and Hungarian nuclear scientists for 2024-2025, including in the field of personnel training, scheduled maintenance and radioactive waste management. The map was signed as a follow-up to the memorandum of understanding concluded in April 2023 between the Belarusian Energy Ministry and the Paks II nuclear power plant.

Paks II, as a nuclear power plant under construction, is interested in attracting Belarusian builders to work on the site. Relevant opportunities are now being worked out.
