“First meeting of German-Belgian nuclear commission”


German representatives used the first meeting by the German-Belgian nuclear commission “to convey the worries of the German population [about Belgian nuclear power stations Tihange 2 and Doel 3] and remind them of the request by environment minister Barbara Hendricks to [Belgian vice prime] minister [Jan] Jambon to shut down the reactors,” writes the environment ministry (BMUB) in a press release. Germany and Belgium last year signed an agreement on improving the exchange of information on nuclear security, which included the commission.
