Nuclear power plant construction project in line with international norms

15.01.2009 14:35

Belarus implements the project to construct the nuclear power plant in line with international norms, Press Secretary of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry Andrei Popov told a briefing in Minsk on January 15.

Andrei Popov underlined that Belarus observes all the international commitments while implementing the nuclear power plant construction project. Belarus honours the Aarhus Convention.

“Within the framework of these agreements, we have established the relevant working contacts with our Lithuanian counterparts. We proceed with our joint work. It might progress not as fast as the both sides want. We are not facing any significant obstacles here, just some minor disagreements over technicalities”.

He added that all the work on the project is carried out in cooperation with the IAEA.

“We will remain committed to all the international obligations of Belarus during the preparation to the construction of the nuclear power plant,” Andrei Popov concluded.

Belarus intends to build a nuclear power plant with the productive capacity of 2 thousand megawatt with the first block being put into operation in 2016 and the second one in 2018. Belarus’ nuclear power plant will be built at the Ostrovetskaya site in the Grodno oblast.

In 1998, the Republic of Belarus took part in the Fourth Ministerial Conference Environment For Europe that was held in Aarhus, Denmark. Our country signed the Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters.
