VILNIUS - Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius says that he partly knows what will be the findings of the working group on the Visaginas Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) project performance and whether the plant will be built but the PM is unwilling to comment yet.

"I partially know what the answer is but today I would not like to comment on it," said the PM, on a national TV show, on Sunday when he was asked whether the nuclear power plant will be built.

"When I return from Baku a study will be presented to my office, I hope, later it will be presented to Parliament and the public but a political discussion will be based on the economic justification of mathematical analysis," said Butkevicius.
