US to fund Bulgarian nuclear reactor


The Bulgarian cabinet has approved a draft agreement with the US on funding an experimental nuclear reactor in the country, as apart of the government’s efforts to create a knowledge-based economy.

The United States, which has three military bases in Bulgaria, will extend financial and technical assistance worth $5.5 million for the experimental nuclear reactor of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, said the report. According to the agreement, the US Department of Energy will assist the academy to export nuclear waste to Russia. The United States is also to provide funds for the safety system of the nuclear reactor and storage site. (
