"Germany has put forward its clear position on nuclear energy. We have refused this energy because we believe that nuclear energy is not safe," State Secretary and Special Envoy for International Climate Action at the Federal Foreign Office of Germany Jennifer Morgan said during her meeting with journalists, APA reports.

She noted that the German society also does not consider nuclear energy safe, "many of them have Chernobyl experience".

"At the same time, the question of what to do with nuclear waste, the danger it creates, causes concern in society. Also, what happened in Fukushima showed that such cases can happen in industrialized countries such as Japan, which have the highest technical capabilities. We believe that the risks of nuclear energy are quite clear. I can also say about its cost that it is very expensive to build a new nuclear energy infrastructure. That is, in addition to the disadvantages of this type of energy, such as waste, leakage risks, financial cost, the issue of time is also the main point. Nuclear energy is not the answer to solving the climate crisis. Building this infrastructure takes time.
