"Nuclear power will reduce the world's reliance on oil and other fossil fuels," said the head of the U.S. delegation for nuclear summit in Ukraine Tuesday.

"I believe that nuclear energy can improve people's lives and help to overcome the effects of the global warming," said Zbigniew Brzezinski while adding that the world needs to continue investing in nuclear fuel researches.

The head of the U.S. delegation stressed that the international community is set to continue providing the financial assistance on Chernobyl's projects.

"The U.S. as well as the international community aimed to help financially to complete all the work to make the Chernobyl facilities safer."

Washington has allocated 123 million U.S. dollars for Chernobyl projects on the donor conference, which was held in Kiev on April 19.
