Austrian government criticized for its stance towards the Czech Republic

The Austrian opposition Social Democrats have accused their country's government of not being sufficiently tough towards the Czech Republic over the controversial Temelin nuclear power plant. The party's environmental spokeswoman said that the government had stopped putting pressure on the Czech side ever since an agreement was signed between the two countries last December, when the Czech side agreed to an environmental impact study. Austrian nuclear opponents have called a further demonstration against Temelin for Friday.
