ASTANA – Kazakhstan will continue to develop nuclear power, Prime Minister Karim Massimov said October 4, Novosti-Kazakhstan reported.

Massimov spoke at the opening of the October 4-5 VI KAZENERGY Eurasian Forum, “Kazakhstan: 20 years of sustainable growth, new horizons for investment and co-operation.”

In June, the government adopted a new energy development programme that includes the construction of a new nuclear power station in Kazakhstan, Massimov said. Kazakhstan must learn from Japan’s March 11 Fukushima nuclear disaster to create a safe energy sector, he added.
