Hungary Joins French-led Nuclear Coalition 

Int’l Relations

Hungary participated at a meeting on Tuesday of 12 countries that have joined a French-led coalition to advocate for nuclear energy, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said during a break in a meeting of European Union energy ministers in Brussels on Tuesday.

Szijjártó said seven of the twelve countries are planning or already building new nuclear power capacity and projected a "nuclear renaissance" in Europe as a buffer against extreme energy price changes.

The coalition members agreed to counter "artificial, ideologically-based negative discrimination" against nuclear energy and will press for changes to lending conditions that allow "fair" access to financing for nuclear investments, he said. They also want a review of legal and licensing procedures based on the decades of experience using nuclear energy in Europe, he added.

To ensure recruitment in the field, the coalition is proposing joint training programs, he said.
