Russia and Hungary sign protocol on cooperation in nuclear projects

      RBC, 29.04.2004, Moscow 19:30:22.Russian Energy Minister Viktor Khristenko and Hungarian Ambassador to Moscow have signed a protocol to the intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in constructing the Paks power station in Hungary, the Russian ministry announced. The two parties have signed the agreement in December 28, 1966. Russian-Hungarian cooperation in peaceful nuclear projects is based on this agreement. The protocol provides a legal base for the ongoing cooperation in nuclear fuel supplies and return of nuclear waste to the country of its origin. Hungary's joining the EU might have affected Russian-Hungarian cooperation in peaceful nuclear projects, but the two parties have proved their intention to cooperate further, the ministry stressed in its written release.

      Similar power stations are built in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Lithuania. 17 contracts on nuclear fuel supplies to theses countries are effective currently. After negotiations with the EU, the union has agreed with Russia on validity of the existing contracts after the upcoming expansion.
