"I think we will have decisions at the companies' level in the fall. From our point of view, this uncertainty can't last forever. Decisions are needed," Neverovič said during a meeting with opposition lawmakers on Wednesday.

The fate of the project is now in the hands of companies in the three Baltic countries, the minister said.

"The companies must show now that they are ready to take that step, although not a final one, in order to demonstrate that their intentions and their attitude toward the process are serious," he said.

Meanwhile, Andrius Kubilius, the parliamentary opposition leader, said that Estonia was the weak link in the nuclear power plant project.

"Estonia is the weak link in this process," he said.
