Macron announces start of nuclear-powered aircraft carrier program

France's President Emmanuel Macron has approved the construction of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier that is set to replace the country's FS Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.

"Charles de Gaulle, as you know, will come to the end of its life in 2038. This is why I have decided that the future aircraft carrier that will equip our country and our navy will be nuclear-powered like the Charles de Gaulle,” Macron said and adding that he has pledged 500 million euros in investment in the nuclear industry.
