The Austrian government has announced plans to analyse the results of an environmental impact study on the Temelin nuclear power plant in South Bohemia. Austrian environmentalists have protested fiercely against Temelin, and Austrian-Czech relations have been strained over the issue. At a meeting in Melk in Austria in December, the leaders of the two countries agreed to carry out an environmental impact study in order to address Austrian safety concerns. According to the results of the study, released on Wednesday, the plant is safe and poses a minimal safety risk. The Austrian government will apparently analyse the study and will release a statement on the issue by the middle of next week. Environmentalists in both Upper and Lower Austria have rejected the study, saying that the results are exaggerated.
