If Vietnam is going to build the nuclear power plant, Russia will become the preferred partner, The Vietnamese ambassador in Moscow Ngo Duc Manh said in his speech.
"We really want to build a nuclear power plant in Vietnam so that we have enough energy sources, but unfortunately, the economy has not allowed it yet. If we decide to build a nuclear power plant, the Russian partner will be the top priority of us," - he told to the media.
Before that there was information that Moscow and Hanoi are going to terminate the agreement for Russian credits to Vietnam for the NPP project.
