The recommendations of the European Union (EU) concerning the safety of Bulgaria's only nuclear plant in the town of Kozloduy have been met, Antonio Madonna, head of the special EU mission to Bulgaria that is carrying out a check on units 3 and 4 of the n-plant said before his departure from Bulgaria.

He also said that the mission was not in Bulgaria to assess whether the two units would be closed, adding that the report on the peer review will be ready in March.

Madonna explained that they experts will report to the EU which will inform Bulgaria. He added that in his opinion there has been some misunderstanding concerning the aims of the peer review.

The experts have also held meeting with Bulgaria's Energy Minister Milko Kovachev who answered all questions of the EU experts.

A day earlier Madonna said that units 3 and 4 are safe. The closure of the two oldest units at the end of last year came after many years of concern over their safety, strong pressure from the European Union, protests from the nuclear lobby and opposition parties that the reactors are economically necessary.
