The article reports on the recommendation issued by the European Parliament to the European Union (EU) regarding the closure of nuclear reactors in Slovakia in 2005. The European Parliament has recommended that the European Union spend € 400 million on decommissioning two reactors at Jaslovske Bohunice nuclear plant in Slovakia. The country agreed to decommission the reactors at its oldest nuclear plant as part of its EU accession terms. Some politicians have opposed the closure, insisting Slovakia will be more dependent on electricity imports as a result.
