“Bulgaria, alongside other countries, including France, will demand that nuclear energy and energy produced from natural gas be recognized, and put on the list of environmentally sustainable economic activities as a matter of urgency,” President Rumen Radev told reporters in Brussels before the European Council meeting, whose agenda includes energy. “In Bulgaria, we are relying on our nuclear sector as a major source of accessible, cheap and reliable energy,” Rumen Radev added.

He pointed out that this country supports the transition to a climate-neutral economy, but that a drastic reduction of emissions would mean, for the country, an acceleration of the process of decommissioning of the traditional base capacities, without there being any readiness to replace them with new, contemporary technologies. In this connection Bulgaria supports a reduction in the prices of greenhouse gas emissions.
