The US Ambassador to Poland, Mark Brzeziński, and the President of Westinghouse Polska, presented the Minister of Climate and Environment, Anna Moskwa, with a conceptual and executive report on cooperation in the field of civil nuclear energy. The document is the result of analyzes, studies and assessments lasting 18 months. The report is a road map for the implementation of the Polish nuclear program, including the construction of all six planned units of the future power plant. It also establishes a framework for Polish-American cooperation in the field of nuclear energy for the next 100 years. The partnership is intended for the US to provide technological support.

– This is one of the most important moments in our bilateral relations. The United States offers Poland a 100-year partnership with world-class technology and financing that will enable the creation of a Polish nuclear energy program, Brzeziński wrote on Twitter. – This comprehensive report reflects the American commitment to Poland’s energy security and may begin an intensive development of multidimensional strategic relations in the field of security and economy – said the diplomat.
