NATO to remove chemicals from Moldova
NATO is planning to install a laboratory in Moldova to deal with dangerous chemical waste. The project might also be supported by Romania, according to the country’s Foreign Minister, Titus Corlatean, who said this in an interview with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.
“These are chemical wastes which can have a noxious effect on the environment and health if they are not removed,” Titus Corlatean said.
On Wednesday, the Romanian official had talks on this issue with the German Foreign Minister, Guido Westerwelle, whilst travelling to Berlin.
Romania’s monetary contribution to this project is due to spike to 300,000 Euro, the Romanian official said.
Within the territory of Moldova there are thousands of tonnes of chemical waste which date back to the former soviet period. They affect the quality of water for many residents of the zones where the majority of the chemicals are deposited.Moldova.ORG
