EU Criticizes German Nuclear Policy

EU Energy Commissioner Loyola de Palacio has criticized the nuclear policy of Jürgen Trittin, Germany's environment minister. Palacio told the German news magazine Focus that the EU wants all member states to name national final disposal sites for nuclear waste. Palacio complained that Trittin has put off making any concrete decision on Germany's proposed nuclear dumping site at Gorleben, which is threatening to unravel the whole project within the bloc. The commissioner has called for all EU countries to fix locations by 2008 and has demanded that all member states submit proposals to that effect.
