AD wants answers about Italian media reports on nuclear ambitions

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

Alternattiva Demokratika yesterday appealed for the prime minister to shed light on a media report in which it was claimed that Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi is considering Malta as a suitable spot for a nuclear power plant.

AD’s spokesman for sustainable development Carmel Cacopardo said the report featured in the Italian newspaper Il-Sole 24 Ore and mentioned Malta, Albania and Montenegro as possible sites for power plants. The report was compiled after a statement released in relation to Dr Gonzi and Mr Berlusconi’s meeting last week.

“The Green Party hopes that this is pure speculation on the part of the author, we consider that it is necessary for the prime minister to confirm or otherwise the said statement,” Mr Cacopardo said.
