Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said Hungary and Slovakia signed a nuclear industry cooperation agreement to coordinate participation in nuclear development projects aimed at the application of the latest technologies. Minister Szijjártó signed the deal with Peter Dovhun, his Slovak counterpart, in Bratislava on Wednesday. Increasing the capacity of nuclear plants is the best way to resolve Europe’s energy crisis, providing large volumes of cheap and safe energy, the minister said. Minister Szijjártó said, however, that “there are serious ideologically and politically motivated endeavours to put nuclear energy at a disadvantage, and strip countries largely dependent on nuclear energy of using that option.” He mentioned Hungary and Slovakia for example, as countries for whose energy security nuclear energy was crucial. “Giving up nuclear energy would run contrary to our national interests,” Minister Szijjártó said.
