Russia to propose nuclear plan at G8: Medvedev

Russia is to propose a plan to boost safety at the world`s nuclear power plants at the G8 summit in May.



Moscow: Russia is to propose a plan to boost safety at the world`s nuclear power plants at the G8 summit in May, President Dmitry Medvedev said Tuesday on the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl catastrophe.
"In May of this year Russia will come forward with a concrete initiative on increasing security of nuclear power
stations at the Group of Eight summit," the Kremlin quoted
Medvedev as saying in a statement.

"They will be related to increasing responsibility of
the countries using nuclear energy," Medvedev said.

Russia has said it remains committed to nuclear power
even after the accident at the quake-damaged Fukushima nuclear
power plant in Japan. But the Kremlin has repeatedly said the
events showed the need for greater security.
