BIH WILL ASK CROATIA NOT TO DISPOSE NUCLEAR WASTE AT BORDER

 

SARAJEVO, March 22 /SRNA/ - The BiH Presidency will ask Croatia to exclude 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. With this conclusion, which is submitted to the media, the BiH Presidency entrusts caretaker Ministry of Foreign Affairs of BiH to inform through the diplomatic and consular missions the EU Member States and international organisations dealing with environmental issues, on the above mentioned issue and the BiH’s request. Within its competences, the BiH Presidency is going to insist on full protection of all the rights that BiH is entitled to under the rules and norms of international law. According to the National Programme for implementing the strategy for disposal of radioactive waste, used sources and nuclear fuel, adopted by the Government of Croatia, a radioactive waste disposal site is planned to be built on Trgovska Gora in Cerkezovac, the municipality of Dvor, at the very border with BiH. The strategy stipulates disposal of all current and future medical and non-medical radioactive waste in Croatia, including a part of the waste from the Krsko Nuclear Power Plant in Croatia. On May 27, 2016, the House of Peoples of the BiH Parliamentary Assembly adopted the Resolution on non-acceptance of the construction of storage and landfill of radioactive waste, used sources and nuclear fuel and opposing the activities related to the construction of the warehouse and landfill on Trgovska Gora. /end/vos
