Croatia has chosen not to join the project for constructing a second NPP in Bulgaria, announced PM Jadranka Kosor.

Monday Bulgarian PM Boyko Borisov had asked both Croatia and Serbia to decide on whether they will commit to the Belene NPP project by the end of the week, when he expects Russian PM Vladimir Putin in Sofia.

According to contract, Belene is to be built by Russian company Atomstroyexport.

"We are not willing to work on that project. We have our own energy strategy and priorities," stated Croatian PM Kosor, emphasizing that Croatia and Bularia will continue friendly and cooperative relations with Bulgaria.

Serbia, on its part, has confirmed that it will participate in Belene NPP, but the official parameters of its involvement are yet to be determined.
