Although America and the world are working to develop more comprehensive plans for nuclear disarmament, Singapore's plans to consider nuclear power as a viable source of energy will not be affected, said Singapore PM Lee Hsien Long.
While at a two-day summit on nuclear energy in Washington DC, attended by 47 global leaders, PM Lee highlighted the many considerations that the nuclear energy option presented, including technological know-how and safety. He said '...these are considerations which we have to take seriously. But they should not hinder the project.'
He impressed that the Singapore government was just starting to consider the nuclear possibility, and no decision has been made to date.
