Serbia is considering building a nuclear power plant
BELGRADE, Serbia, November 23 (SeeNews) – Serbia is considering building a nuclear power plant in partnership with Russia’s Rosatom, as nuclear power could be included in the European Union’s green finance taxonomy, President Aleksandar Vucic said on Tuesday.
“Now we are thinking about the issue of nuclear power plants, we are thinking about a lot of questions together with Rosatom,” said Vucic in a video file that was published on the YouTube channel of Russian journalist Vladimir Solovyov.
The biggest obstacle to building a nuclear power plant in Serbia is financial, Vucic said in an interview for the talk show Solovyov Live.
“Large nuclear power plants cost over 10 billion euros ($ 11.3 billion), but we have agreed that our national debt should always be below 60% of our gross domestic product,” he said.
Earlier this month, Vucic said Serbia proposed to acquire a 15% stake in Hungarian Paks Nuclear Power Plant (AKW).
