Public support required to re-start nuclear power project

Apr 22, 2014
From wire reports, VILNIUS

If Latvia and Estonia support the idea to build a nuclear power plant in Visaginas, the government will find ways for the public to express its opinion about the new project, says Lithuanian Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius, reports ELTA.

Presenting the yearly report of the 16th government in the parliament, the prime minister highlighted the need to ensure timely construction of strategic energy projects as threats for security emerge in Europe's east.

Butkevicius said the Visaginas NPP project has been improved and better funding opportunities have been created.

"This has enhanced competitiveness of the project and made it more acceptable. Nonetheless, our partners, Latvia and Estonia, have questions. Lithuania has presented its position and now we are waiting for their opinion. If it was decided to build a new NPP we would find ways to ask for the public's opinion again," the prime minister stated.
