Romania's government has asked Sofia for additional information on Bulgaria's second nuclear power plant environmental parameters.

Bulgaria's Environment Minister Dolores Arsenova explained that Sofia will be ready with the additional data in 15 days.

Bucharest has requested more information on the technology and the company that would supply the Belene nuke with the specific equipment.

Earlier in September residents of the Danube-town of Turnu Magurele, South Romania, protested against the construction of a nuclear power plant on the Bulgarian side of the river. Meanwhile, Mircea Geoana, Romania's Foreign Minister said that the construction of Belene is a "sensible" topic.

Bulgaria's second nuclear plant in Belene was re-launched for construction after a government decision end of last year. It had been set to a halt in 1992 due to protests from environmentalists.
