MOSCOW, January 23. /TASS/. Hungary has confirmed its intention to step up work on the nuclear power plant Paks in cooperation with Russia’s Rosatom, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a news conference following talks with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Sijjarto.
"The Hungarian partners have reaffirmed Budapest’s intention to keep working on the expansion of the Paks nuclear power plant in cooperation with Rosatom," Lavrov said. "The bilateral agreements concluded so far and the contact itself encompass the entire life cycle of the power plant from construction to fuel supplies and maintenance. This is a strategic project in scale and by virtue of its high-tech nature."
Lavrov mentioned the successful implementation of other projects, including the project for upgrading the rolling stock for a third line of Moscow’s metro and a number of other agreements that had been concluded earlier and now were in the phase of active implementation.
"In the context of tight exchanges among our countries’ regions a decision has been made to set up another inter-governmental commission for inter-regional cooperation. Preparations for its constituent meeting are underway," Lavrov said.
He noted with satisfaction the deepening of cultural and humanitarian cooperation, including student exchanges and pro-active dialogue between the foreign ministries.
