Faced with the still unclear future of nuclear energy in Europe, the Czech Republic and France have created a special "nuclear alliance". Poland is also among the signatories of the nuclear energy pact.

In a joint statement, Prague and Paris indicated that the European Union needs nuclear energy to successfully fight climate change, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Štěpánka Filipová, told the Czech Information Agency (ČTK) yesterday.

According to both countries, nuclear energy is an important source of energy in the context of the EU's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A whole group of EU countries joined the new alliance, including Bulgaria, Croatia, Finland, Hungary, aforementioned Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia.

The Czech Republic is preparing a tender for the construction of new units at the Dukovany Power Plant. One of the favorites of this tender is the French company EDF, due to the fact that the Czech authorities have excluded companies from Russia and China due to security issues.
