Germany asks Belgium to take 2 nuclear reactors offline over safety concerns
Germany has asked Belgium to take two nuclear reactors temporarily offline while questions about their safety are cleared up, Reuters reported. In an unusual diplomatic move, Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks said she asked Belgium to shut down its Tihange 2 and Doel 3 reactors. The Reactor Safety Commission that advises the ministry earlier could not confirm the reactors would be safe in the event of a hazardous incident. Belgium’s Energy Ministry has not commented on the matter. Germany pledged to abandon nuclear power generation completely by 2022 in favor of other power sources.
