Bulgaria will face the need to import electricity, unless it keeps operating Kozloduy units 3 and 4.

According to Prof Andre Maisseu, President of the World Council of Nuclear Workers, the import of energy is the only prospect of making up with the decommissioned nuclear facilities.

Bulgaria should realize the fact that it needs its power plant to be a guarantee for stability on the Balkans, Prof Maisseu pointed out in an interview for Bulgaria's Trud Daily.

The Nuclear Workers Council has called on to Bulgarians to join the international protest in defense of Kozloduy, due to be held on May 13-14.

Bulgaria has agreed to close units 3, 4 of its only nuclear power plant by the end of 2006 under pressure from the EU. Many experts and politicians, however, are still opposing the decision, insisting that it would prompt an economic crisis in the country.
