EU sends clear signal to Belarus over Astravyets N-plant - Lithuanian president's adviser
Tuesday, November 28, 2017
The European Union has expressed solidarity with Lithuania over a nuclear plant that Belarus is building close to the border, thus sending an important and clear message to Minsk, an adviser to President Dalia Grybauskaitė said on Tuesday.
He added that Belarus had to show openness on nuclear safety issues, adhere to international conventions and carry out the so-called stress tests.
Juncker said during the summit last Friday that the Astravyets project, criticized by Vilnius for failing to meet international safety standards, "is a European issue" and that Brussels "will follow this very closely".
