Peter Szijjarto said on Facebook that the only cheap, efficiant, safe and environmentally friendly way to satisfy increasing demand was nuclear energy.

“It is therefore very important that we have won two battles in Brussels, when the European Union recognised nuclear energy as sustainable and when we prevented the sanctions to be imposed on it,” he said.

He said China was at the forefront of developing nuclear technologies and in in Hungary “a compehensive nuclear ecosystem has developed”. As a result, “we have a vested interest in developing such nuclear cooperation”, he added.

“Based on talks with leaders of the China National Nuclear Corporation today, I was convinced that that interest is not one-sided,” he said.
