Lithuania’s Energy Minister Jaroslav Neverovič denies having met with representatives of Russia’s state-owned energy company Rosatom, a subsidiary of which, Germany’s Nukem, is implementing multi-billion-litas decommissioning projects at Lithuania’s shut-down Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (INPP).

The minister said on Wednesday he was unaware whether the representatives of Rosatom, namely vice-president of Rosatom’s subsidiary Rusatom Overseas Alexander Merten, sought to meet with him. “I know nothing about it,” Neverovič said.

“I will not make any comments on these issues since we have not invited anyone,” the minister said in response to the question whether the Energy Ministry had invited Rosatom.

Meanwhile, Rosatom stated on Tuesday that Merten’s visit to Lithuania had been coordinated with the Energy Ministry.

Neverovič would also make no comments about Rosatom’s willingness to contribute to the construction of a new nuclear facility.

“I have nothing to say about it, we are now considering the strategy [the National Energy Strategy] and are not dealing with any wishes or requests of other companies.”

Last week, Merten met with Lithuania’s Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius and Seimas speaker Vydas Gedvilas.

Atomstroyexport, a subsidiary of Rosatom, owns 100 percent of Nukem’s shares.
