Slovakia PM: CEE countries ‘need to reach agreement’ on nuclear energy

History

In an interview with Slovakian national news service TASR this week, Prime Minister Robert Fico expressed his concern regarding recent European Commission interest in assuming a greater role within the European Union’s nuclear energy sector.

Fico remained optimistic about finding a solution to potential blockage of member states’ nuclear ambitions, however, stating that “history has shown that if opposing member states engage in negotiations … a mutually satisfactory solution is always found.”

Fico stated that he believes Hungary and the Czech Republic are “ready to form solid opposition [with Slovakia] to any potential anti-nuclear measures sponsored by the EU.” Said the PM: “We would need to reach some kind of an agreement. There is no other way out.”
