Saturday’s edition of the Czech newspaper Mladá fronta Dnes quoted a source as saying that if the US and Russian presidents do come to Prague, they could announce a joint bid in a tender for the completion of the Temelín nuclear power plant in south Bohemia and the building of other nuclear stations in the future. Both the American firm Westinghouse and Russia’s Atomstroy are reportedly interested in what would be one of the biggest such contracts in Europe.
