The US Department of Energy plans to move its European regional office to Prague from Sofia, with the decision reportedly influenced by Westinghouse's interest in building new nuclear blocks in the Czech Republic and the growing influence in Central Europe of Russia and China.
The US Embassy in Prague confirmed the planned move but did not comment on the reasons behind it beyond saying in a statement that the European region office works to promote energy security, non-proliferation, scientific cooperation, and American commercial interests in the region.
