Vietnamese, British strengthen atomic bonds

Vietnam’s unshakable determination to build a series of nuclear power plants has caught the attention of the British.

The United Kingdom wants to expand initiatives to safely develop nuclear energy in Vietnam as part of a bilateral cooperation on nuclear energy. UK Ambassador to Vietnam Antony Stokes affirmed this recently in Hanoi at a seminar attended by Vietnamese and British scientists.

Stokes said nuclear power has become an important energy source for humankind, helping meet energy demand in the UK and in other countries that will soon includeVietnam.

Le Dinh Tien, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology, said Vietnam recognized that nuclear power development is a complicated task requiring a comprehensive development of infrastructure; a large pool of scientists and technicians and huge financial resources.

He said the meeting between scientists of both countries will help Vietnamese lawmakers, investors and experts gain valuable experience in building the Ninh Thuan nuclear power plant, and opening new cooperative opportunities for the two countries in this field.
