MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. Rosatom expects to receive payment from Bulgaria by court order before the end of the year regarding termination of Belene NPP project, the company said on Thursday.
"State Corporation Rosatom welcomes the steps of the Bulgarian side aimed at creating the necessary conditions for early implementation of the decision of the Arbitration Court in relation to Belene NPP project," the company said, adding that it hopes "that the money will be paid before the end of the year."
The parties agreed to take all the necessary steps for execution of the arbitral decision as soon as possible.
It was reported earlier that Rosatom expected information from Bulgaria about when the country would pay compensation for terminated Belene project.
