Belarus and Hungary are planning to establish cooperation in the field of nuclear energy. Countries reached the agreement at a meeting of the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Hungary, Alexander Ponomarev, with the Minister for Planning, Construction and Commissioning of New Paks Nuclear Power Plants, Jánoš Šuli, told BelTA in the press service of the Foreign Ministry.
The head of the Belarusian diplomatic mission handed over an official invitation to János Shuli to visit the country to exchange experience on the construction of a nuclear power plant and to negotiate cooperation in the field of nuclear energy and other areas. The invitation was accepted by the Hungarian side.
The nuclear power plant “Paks”, built in the city of the same name in the late 1980s by the Soviet project, produces a significant portion of the electricity consumed in Hungary. In the near future, it is planned to begin construction of additional power units at nuclear power plants with the participation of the Rosatom Corporation.
