The decision to relaunch one of the V1 reactor blocks at the Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear power plant (Trnava region) has been postponed, Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said on January 13.

Following a crisis management session, Fico announced that Slovakia's back-up systems for generating electricity will be able to sustain energy supplies for several days.

The government had announced on Saturday January 10 that it was planning to resume operation of a Jaslovské Bohunice V1 reactor block because of electricity supply problems which it said were caused by disruption of the natural gas supply from Russia. TASR
