AEA praises nuclear safety in Slovakia

SLOVAKIA has made great progress in modernising and improving security measures at its nuclear facilities, International Atomic Energy Agency [AEA] Director General Mohamed ElBaradei said in Bratislava on June 1.

Speaking at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, ElBaradei also praised cooperation between the agency and Slovakia, saying that it mainly provides Slovakia with advisory services, the news wire TASR wrote.

"Slovakia has made great progress over the past few years as far as the modernisation of its nuclear facilities is concerned. This results from the efforts of Slovakia and the international community," he said.

ElBaradei would not comment on the recent controversy related to the possible completion of two blocks of the country's nuclear power plant in Mochovce and suspension of the closure of the Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear plant.

The completion of the Mochovce plant, recently proposed by Slovak Economy Minister Pavol Rusko, is strongly opposed by Austria.
