The IAEA mission is going to visit Belarus in the near future, Deputy Director of the NAS United Energy and Nuclear Research Institute Sosny Nikolai Grusha said at the Belarusian Energy and Ecological Congress in Minsk on October 15.

The International Atomic Energy Agency is set to assess the preparations for the construction of a nuclear power station in Belarus, reported Belta.

Nikolai Grusha underlined the importance of the cooperation between Belarus and IAEA. The agency has been taking part in energy planning, choosing a construction site for the nuclear power station and events concerning the environmental protection. Not long ago Belarus informed IAEA on a decision to construct a nuclear power station.
