PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA VLADIMIR PUTIN: Colleagues,
Аccess to sufficient, affordable and safe energy resources is a fundamental condition for ensuring stable growth in the Asia-Pacific region and throughout the world.
Strengthening international cooperation in peaceful nuclear energy is another issue. We all know about the Fukushima tragedy, which has been a big lesson for us all. We will continue to meet the highest safety demands in building and operating nuclear power plants. We are currently carrying out a number of projects in this sector in Asia, including building a nuclear power station in China. I was very pleased to hear that our Chinese friends and partners are satisfied with the quality that we offer. I also note the strong international dimension of these nuclear energy sector projects.
We are not chasing big profits and any extra money we can get, but are building relations with global technology leaders, so as to have leaders in their sectors handle each component of these big international projects. These are costly projects, running into the billions – from $2-3 billion to $8-10 billion. In each case, contracts worth around 25-30 percent of the project’s total cost go to subcontractors in the partner country, where the facilities are being built. This is the approach laid out in the bilateral agreements we sign with our traditional partners, and the safety issue is of course the top priority. This is something we discuss, coordinate and agree on with our friends in Japan, the United States, Australia, and other countries too. We will continue to follow these principles.
Moscow is proposing the idea of launching a system of monitoring natural and man-made disasters in the Asia-Pacific region, said President Vladimir Putin.
"Russia wants a regional system of monitoring natural and man-made disasters to be formed. We are prepared to cooperate intensively with our partners in the Asia and Pacific region in this project," Putin told the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum's business summit on Friday.
"The Fukushima nuclear power plant disasters was a serious lessons for all," he said.
"High safety standards of nuclear power plant construction and operation is the demand that cannot be ignored," Putin said.
"This particular approach lies at the base of the bilateral agreements which Russia recently signed with Japan, the United States, Australia and other countries," he said.
"We will adhere to it in the future," Putin said.
