The EU will start negotiations with Russia on the export of uranium at the beginning of the next year. This was disclosed at a press-conference in Moscow by European Commission (supreme executive body of the EU) Director-General for Energy and Transportation Francois Lamoureux.
"With the beginning of the next year we will start negotiations with the Russian authorities on the export of uranium to the EU countries. On our part, we will be negotiating prices and deliveries with Euroatom," he said.
The current Russia-EU energy dialogue enabled the European Commission to persuade EU members to give a mandate for negotiations on export of Russian uranium to the EU, Francois Lamoureux said.
