Ekoloski Ustanak Movement asks Vucic to publicly reveal the document he signed in Paris

Ekoloski Ustanak Movement has asked Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic, say reveal whether it is true that during his official visit to Paris it was agreed that the French company EDF, which has 58 nuclear power plants, would store its nuclear waste in Serbia.

The Movement also called on Vucic to immediately make publicly available every document he signed in Paris on behalf of the Serbian authorities, which concern energy, energy projects and the construction of nuclear, hydro and other energy facilities.

The Serbian government and the French power company EDF signed on Monday in Paris a MoU on establishing a framework for long-term dialogue and cooperation on energy transition and low-carbon technologies.

In the presence of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, the MoU was signed by Serbian Finance Minister Sinisa Mali and EDF Director General Luc Remont.

Previously, Vucic met with EDF executives.

Vucic is on a two-day visit to France at the invitation of President Emmanuel Macron.

The Serbian government adopted the MoU last Friday.

“The memorandum creates conditions for a strategic partnership with the EDF to assess the potential for development of a civilian nuclear programme in Serbia with support for the development of qualified personnel and exchange of technical know-how.

The EDF has also expressed interest in cooperation with the Serbian power company EPS on the development of new and revitalisation of existing hydropower plants, including those of regional interest, to ensure energy security to Serbia by using the best international environmental, technological and practical standards,” Serbian Minister of Mining and Energy Dubravka Djedovic Handanovic said at the time.

She added the MoU also envisioned potential cooperation on the development of energy storage facilities as well as solutions for efficient use of generated energy.
