The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, said that Serbia is considering the possibility of building a nuclear power plant. He added that he is consulting on the matter with the Russian state-owned atomic energy company Rosatom.
In an interview for the Soloviev Live channel, Vučić also said that Serbia had not thought about it before, but is now starting to think seriously about it. He added there is a problem with financing because a large nuclear power plant costs more than 10 billion euros to build and Serbia has decided that its public debt will always be below 60 percent of the GDP.
“We should never endanger the future of our children because of a big public debt,” Vučić noted. The Serbian President said that many issues are being discussed together with Rosatom. “We will see how it will go, but we need further consultations with our Russian partners on how to work in the future,” he concluded.
