BiH’s Foreign Minister believes the Country has strong Arguments against Croatia’s Plan to build Nuclear Waste Disposal

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH’s) Foreign Minister Igor Crnadak believes that our country has strong arguments and detailed explanation against Croatia’s intention to dispose of nuclear waste from the Krsko Nuclear Power Plant right on the border with BiH.

“BiH must use all available opportunities and mechanism to try to prevent Croatia’s decision,” he said.

Crnadak said that all levels of government in BiH worked together to prevent the disposal of waste at the location and Minister Golic once again urged Croatian authorities to change the decision and choose one of the seven locations that had been foreseen in earlier documents for the disposal of nuclear waste, Federal News Agency reports.

Minister of Economy in the Una-Sana Canton Government (USC) Nijaz Kadiric warned how the multiple negative impacts that the possible construction of radioactive waste disposal site by Croatia just on the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) could have on tourism in the canton.

After the public debate on the Draft Law on Amendments to the Law on Tourism in the USC, Kadiric said that many are very interested to express their views, especially regarding the previously mentioned problem, the announced construction of a nuclear radioactive waste disposal site in Trgovska Gora.

“Citizens are becoming ever louder about it, saying that all of this has become a nightmare and that it is unacceptable for the nuclear disposal site to be at that location,” says Kadiric.

“We must not forget that in the USC area we have protected natural areas that we need to cherish and guard, that we have unprecedented natural beauties, but also multiple events of an international and traditional character that ensure the building of a positive image for which we are working very hard to achieve and maintain,” Kadiric stated.

He concluded by saying that tourism in this region would definitely be compromised and can be completely destroyed by the construction of the landfill.
