No deal on nuclear fusion reactor, says EU
BRUSSELS: Talks on where to build the world’s first nuclear fusion reactor ended without a deal on Tuesday but the European Union said Japan and the United States no longer firmly opposed its bid to put the plant in France.
“There was no agreement but there was no breakdown either. On the contrary, we have done good work and made good progress,” European Commission spokesman Fabio Fabbi said after the six-party talks ended without agreement in Vienna.
“The two countries least enthusiastic about the European option — Japan and the United States — weren’t very warm but they were no longer firmly against it,” he said. The talks involved the EU, United States, Japan, Russia, China and South Korea. reuters
