|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying's Remarks on British Government's Delay in Approving Hinkley Point Nuclear Power Plant|
Q: The British government said that it would delay making final decisions on the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant, and has put off a signing ceremony for the nuclear energy cooperation agreement between China General Nuclear Power Corporation, Électricité de France (EDF), and the British government. What is your response?
A: We have noted the British government's decision to postpone approving the project. I would like to stress that this project was agreed upon by China, Britain and France in the spirit of mutual benefit and win-win cooperation, and has always had the strong support of Britain and France. It is hoped that Britain can reach a decision as soon as possible to ensure the project's smooth implementation.
