The Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has confirmed the country’s backing for nuclear power saying that “there is no question” of Poland abandoning plans to build a nuclear power plant.

Mr. Tusk’s statement to local press directly contradicts a statement last month by Treasury Minister Mikolaj Budzanowski, who had claimed that the government could no longer support the venture due to the recessionary slowdown.

The first wing of the power plant, which is due to be built at an as of yet unconfirmed location on the Baltic coast, was supposed to be up and running in 2023.

Mr Tusk added that “nuclear power must have its place” and that “there is no reasonable alternative to this technology,” as cited by the Polish Press Agency (PAP).

Poland is keen to reduce dependency on gas power from Russia.
