The Belarusian Energy Ministry is confident in the possibility of constructive cooperation with Lithuania in the area of nuclear energy. Belarusian Energy Minister Viktor Karankevich made the statement as he met with the Lithuanian ex-president, member of the European Parliament Rolandas Paksas. Viktor Karankevich reminded that Belarus had voluntarily arranged stress tests of the nuclear power plant and a peer review. A national action plan was put together in the wake of the stress tests. Minsk actively cooperates with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO). Safety is the top priority in implementing the project to build the nuclear power plant.
