BELGRADE, Serbia, Dec. 1 (UPI) — Serbia has no plans to build nuclear power plants, the country’s Ministry of Mining and Energy says.
Ministry spokesman Milan Budimir said Monday that Serbia is still abiding by a nationwide nuclear ban, the Serbian news agency Tanjung reported.
“In accordance with the ban on nuclear power plants, which is still in power, the Ministry of Mining and Energy has not made any plans or projects for the construction of nuclear facilities in Serbia,” the ministry’s spokesman said.
The comments came after Russian Ambassador to Serbia Aleksandr Konuzin said Monday that talks were underway in which Russia has indicated a willingness to help Belgrade build nuclear and other types of power plants, Tanjung said.
