Macedonia has received an invitation to participate in Belene nuclear power plant. Bulgarian Minister of Economy, Energy and Tourism Traycho Traykov told Macedonian Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Pesevski during the Vienna Economic Forum that Macedonia had an invitation to join the international project in Bulgaria. Pesevski expects that the proposal will be extended officially in the next few days and then Macedonia will make an analysis whether it is profitable to have a share in the nuclear power plant.
“It is a good idea to discuss and analyze. If the region is politically stable, the proposal is very interesting. On the other hand, if each country decides to generates its electricity with own sources, its price will be higher. We will discuss the options and send a reply within a reasonable term,” said Pesevski.
