German Atomic Forum Welcomes Announcement Regarding Lifting of Gorleben Moratorium

Berlin, 15.03.2010

The German Atomic Forum welcomes the announcement by Federal Minister for the Environment Norbert Röttgen regarding the desire to recommence exploration work in the Gorleben salt dome after an interruption of almost 10 years and to continue it without prejudice. In line with the agreement of June 2001 between the energy supply companies and the Federal Government at that time, the moratorium ought actually to have been lifted at the end of 2005 back when what were referred to as ?doubtful issues? had been dealt with. Therefore, we now anticipate that the exploration will be brought to a swift end in order to obtain a clear understanding of the suitability or non-suitability of the site.
