DODIK CONVINCED CROATIA WILL GIVE UP ON DISPOSAL OF NUCLEAR WASTE AT BORDER WITH BiH

 

SARAJEVO, March 22 /SRNA/ - BiH Presidency Chairman Milorad Dodik voiced his belief that the Republic of Croatia will give up its intention to dispose nuclear waste at the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, because it would, as he pointed out, further contaminate not only the relations in the region that desperately needs stability, but also the lives of the residents of that part of BiH.

 

"The information I have is that the implementation of such a plan, made by Croatia, would affect not only the current residents of that part of Republika Srpska and the FBiH, but also those who are not yet born, thus we, as responsible people, should do everything to prevent such scenario from happening," said Dodik, at whose initiative the BiH Presidency today passed decision to ask Croatia to exclude the location of Trgovska Gora in the municipality of Dvor, near the border with BiH, as a location intended for the storage and disposal of radioactive and nuclear waste. Dodik stated in his SRNA interview that by deciding to dispose nuclear waste at the border with another country, Croatia violated not only the environmental protection conventions, but also those related to cross-border cooperation. "Croatia is EU member state and, precisely because of this fact, I believe that through diplomatic activity we will be able to explain to people in the EU and to the organisations dealing with environmental protection that the National Programme for implementation the strategy for management and disposal of radioactive waste adopted by the Croatian Government is aimed against the lives and health of more than half a million people in BiH," Dodik concluded. The BiH Presidency made a decision today to ask Croatia to exclude the location of Trgovska Gora in the municipality of Dvor, near the border with BiH, as a location intended for the disposal and storage of radioactive and nuclear waste. Croatia is required to provide another adequate location for the storage of radioactive and nuclear waste in its territory, which is not near the border with BiH, reads the conclusion adopted today by the Presidency of BiH. BiH Presidency Chairman Milorad Dodik will send a letter to the president and prime ministers of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic and Andrej Plenkovic, in order to inform them on the aforementioned BiH’s request. /end/vos
