NUCLEAR CHESS

Brussels blasts Slovak nuclear move

Mr Barroso has also sent a letter to Slovak President Ivan Gasparovic saying Bratislava's decision to turn on a defunct nuclear reactor at the Jaslovske Bohunice power plant is contrary to the country's 2004 accession treaty.

President Barroso also asked for more information surrounding the decision, with Brussels holding legal fire for now.

The commission has not received an official request from Bulgaria to re-open its Kozloduy nuclear plant, which was also closed as part of its 2006 accession deal.

Article 36 of the Bulgarian accession treaty allows it to restart the unit "under exceptional circumstances." A similar clause for Slovakia has already expired. . . . .THE PRESENT GAS CRISIS IN EUROPE . . . . . .HAS GIVEN SOME COUNTRIES . . . . . .AN EXCUSE TO RESTART THEIR NUCLEAR REACTORS . . . .A BACKWARD STEP IN MY OPINION
