IAEA assesses nuclear risks

REPRESENTATIVES from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) began a two-week conference in Bratislava January 24 to analyze risks inherent in the phasing out of Jaslovské Bohunice's nuclear power plant.

The current plan is to close the first of the power plant's blocks by 2006 and the second by 2008. Critics of the plan say that a 2008 deadline for both blocks would be safer.

IAEA's main goal is to assess the survey of the plant and judge if Slovakia's numerical calculations are accurate, so that the results can be used in documentation to be submitted to the cabinet by the Economy Ministry in February, the TASR news agency wrote.

Six experts appointed by IAEA - from Bulgaria, Russia, Spain, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, are taking part in the talks.
