Weekly Review of Slovene Economy from 27 June through 4 July
Ljubljana, 4 July - Current developments regarding the Krsko Nuclear Power Plant were discussed on Monday, 29 June, by representatives of the Slovene economics and foreign ministries and N-Plant officials. It was obvious that the Slovene and Croatian sides had different ideas on how to settle the problems concerning the Krsko N-Plant, Government PR and Information Office Director Marta Kos said. The Slovene government can not agree to put the safety of Slovene citizens at stake, and expects the Croatian side to behave in the same manner. The Croatian side must not afford to imperil the safety, normal functioning and modernization of the plant out of some partial interests, the Slovene side maintains. Slovene government circles maintain that it is in the private interests of certain circles within the Croatian power industry to break off the talks on the N-Plant, which would threaten the N-Plant modernization scheme, thus increasing risks to safety. By employing the strategy of delay, the Croatian side contradicts the commitments to which it agreed by approving the 1998 N-Plant business plan as well as the modernization scheme. The Slovene government is not likely to debate Krsko N-Plant-related issues at its session on Thursday. However, the N-Plant Board will convene next week to discuss the modernization process.
