Turkovic in Vienna asks from Croatia to find a new Location for Nuclear Waste Disposal

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bisera Turkovic, spoke today in Vienna at the 64th General Assembly of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). She also spoke about Croatia’s plan to build nuclear waste dumps on Trgovska Gora.

“Due to the proposed nuclear waste in Trgovska Gora, in the neighboring state of Croatia, the lives of those living near the Una River are endangered. The location in Trgovska Gora is less than one kilometer from the border with BiH. Therefore, we are asking for the help of the European Union and the IAEA, in order to help our neighbor find a safe and suitable place for his nuclear waste, “said Turkovic.

During his five-day visit to the Republic of Austria, Turkovic will hold a series of meetings with the country’s officials and representatives of several UN agencies based in Vienna and the OSCE, Report.ba reports.
