The ministers also reached a consensus over how to strengthen nuclear security and approach the EU’s climate policy.

“The energy policy of the EU must be only of a complementary character,” said Martin Kuba, the Czech Minister of Industry and Trade. “It must not interfere with the decision making of individual countries of member states about the energy mix [of sources of energy like crude oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear energy, and renewable energy].”
