[Machine Translation] The local media reported that the authorities are considering selling to the UK on the equipment of the fourth (Longmen) nuclear power plant where the strict quality assurance is a problem and Taiwan authorities are frozen construction. Taiwan, which sets out nuclear power policy, is also exploring ways to reduce the residents burden associated with it. Consideration of the sale of equipment is considered part of that.
