BelNPP promoted as shared asset of countries in the region

BelNPP promoted as shared asset of countries in the region

MINSK, 8 February (BelTA) – The Belarusian nuclear power plant can become a shared asset of countries in the region, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko noted as he met with Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis on 8 February, BelTA has learned.

“This NPP is Belarusian. We are moving towards globalization, the boundaries are blurring. The time will come when it becomes a common heritage of Belarus and Latvia,” Alexander Lukashenko remarked.

The head of state thanked Latvia for not criticizing Belarus for the construction of its own nuclear power plant. According to Alexander Lukashenko, the BelNPP will benefit the current generation and the future ones, too.

Alexander Lukashenko said that Poland also wants to build its own NPP, but no one takes a stand against these plans. “We will construct the plant. We are building it in compliance with the principles of the international law. I often suggest that we think together how we can use it,” the head of state remarked.

The president also considers it possible to invite over the Lithuanian specialists who had earlier worked at the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant but lost their jobs when the facility was closed. “We are not afraid of this, although this is a very important facility,” he stated.

In his words, Belarus is very interested in the safety of its nuclear power plant, more than other states. “We bear the responsibility. For some reason, no one is against the nuclear power plants that are built everywhere. Russia builds scores of such plants and reactors across the globe. This is why we will complete the BelNPP construction. And I suggest we reap mutual benefits from it,” the Belarusian leader summarized.
