MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Hungary’s refusal to cooperate with Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom would be damaging to Hungarian economy.

"We offer good terms and advanced technology," the president said at a meeting with Rosatom head Sergey Kiriyenko. "So, if the partner is forced to refuse [to cooperate], which certainly can be done, it would be damaging to the Hungary’s national interests."

Kiriyenko said, giving credit to the Hungarian government in this issue: "The government of Hungary has been very firmly insisting on contract fulfilment."

Referring to problems in cooperation with Hungary, the Rosatom chief said that "obviously, they were caused by pressure, The Financial Times even tried to report that the European Union turned down the Hungarian government’s request." "We have received confirmation from the government of Hungary that all the agreements are in force on a wide range of projects - the construction of a nuclear power plant, plus the supplies of fuel, plus the services - a very big, serious portfolio. Everything has been confirmed and coordinated and the contract is coming into effect," Kiriyenko said.
