Prime Minister Alexander Stubb said that none of the European leaders he has met has criticised Finland's cooperation with Russian energy company Rosatom.
Stubb confirmed to reporters in London that the subject on Rosatom was brought up during discussion with his opposite number, David Cameron.
Stubb has in the recent past met with German and French leaders.
The Finnish premier said his discussion with his counterpart was mainly centred on the EU Commission decision related to their support in the nuclear sector.Stubb said that it was clear that he had explained Finland’s position on the matter. The Finnish premier added that the subject of Rosatom had raised no eyebrows in any conversation.
According to an official release from the government,the two leaders discussed their countries' climate and energy policy outlines with a view to the forthcoming European Council, the development of the European Union, the ongoing EU debate in Britain and other key topics of international politics. The prime ministers also discussed the preparations for the Northern Future Forum, to be hosted by Prime Minister Stubb in Helsinki on 6-7 November.
The premier also gave speech on climate and energy issues at an event organised by the Centre for European Reform (CER) said the release.
"Our climate and energy policy framework needs to be both ambitious and cost-effective and focus on ways of cutting emissions. We need to address energy security at the European level, instead of national approaches. The debate must place particular attention to the diversity of our energy mix, energy efficiency and the Internal Energy Market," said Stubb in the release.
