Korea will maintain its stance on its anti-nuclear policy in the wake of heated debate over Taiwan’s latest referendum that voted in favor of repealing the nuclear phase-out, according to a senior government official of the Energy Ministry on Monday. “Taiwanese seemed to decide to abandon its anti-nuclear policy in the wake of a massive blackout in August last year.
