The Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations in the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Stasa Kosarac, expects that at the next session of the Council of Ministers, a decision will be made on the formation of an expert team for Trgovska Gora, because it is unacceptable to build a radioactive waste repository on the BiH border.
Kosarac emphasized that this will enable experts in BiH, on the basis of scientific, research and professional knowledge, to answer all open questions regarding the possible construction of a nuclear and radioactive landfill on Trgovska Gora, Vijesti.ba news portal reports.
He expects that after the formation of the expert team, a meeting with the competent ministry in the Government of Croatia will follow and that, based on the application of European conventions, scientific, research and professional staff from BiH will be able to come to Trgovska Gora.
“I expect that in parallel, as the Croatian side does, our side will do the same, that with the strength of scientific research we will give a very clear message that we have the capacity in the country to answer such a question, and at the same time the legal team will do its part,” said Kosarac and added that he will not give up on that.
He mentioned that they made the structure of the future expert team for Trgova Gora, based on the proposals that came from the entity ministries, agencies at the level of BiH, local government units from the Federation of BiH and RS.
At the same time, Košarac added, they are working on forming a proposal of a team for legal experts not to give up on the internationally recognized rights that BiH has signed at the international level.
He reiterated that it is completely unacceptable to build such a landfill on the border with BiH.
