The restart of Bulgaria’s nuclear power project “Belene” was one of the major topics on “Online” with Georgi Koritarov on BG Radio on 09.06.2018.

About China National Nuclear Corporation’s (CNNC) interest in the “Belene” NPP project, despite its priorities for building nuclear power plants mainly with Chinese reactors, comments by Mr. Zheng Zhong, Chairman of the Council on Economic and Diplomatic Relations and owner of Terraland Group.

“It is important for Bulgaria to conduct negotiations for the nuclear power project “Belene” with confidence, defending the interests of all parties to the deal. These are some of the most important elements in every negotiation. Because when there is even one unhappy and degraded party in a deal, the project is doomed to failure. That’s the reason why everything must happen in a way so that everyone is leaving the negotiating table happily and then go on with the next projects.” – Zheng Zhong

Is it crucial for China to make a breakthrough with the construction of a nuclear power plant on the territory of the EU and what are the chances for China’s new geopolitical start within the EU through the financing and construction of the Belene NPP.
