". Madam President, the issue of nuclear energy is perhaps one of the most divisive issues between the citizens of Europe and the Member States, and today’s debate has also broadly touched upon that. However, if we look at the Euratom Treaty objectively, which the report does, then we will see that it provided for many important things. Firstly, everybody believed 50 years ago that nuclear energy provided such cheap energy that there would be no need even to measure it. The Euratom Treaty provided the framework and support for research that definitely developed safeguards, safety and the treatment of nuclear waste. The Euratom Treaty also gave grounds for non-proliferation. Nowhere in the world is the system of safeguards as strong as in the European Union, and that is because of the Euratom Treaty. If we look to the future, we know that nuclear power stations will be built, including in the European Union. The issues we have had with Temelín will not be unique, and we really need to work towards greater consensus on what we would like to achieve with nuclear energy in the European Union. In this connection, the Honourable Member Mr Hudacký mentioned the Nuclear Forum. That is an important element in trying to build consensus in this very important area, particularly in terms of global challenges. I meet a lot of representatives not only of Member States but also of third countries who are very keen to start using nuclear energy, at the same time not only using their energy for the final stage but also having the whole cycles. I believe if the European Union does not take a strong position on addressing all the issues related to the nuclear cycle, the world will be a much more dangerous place. Therefore, I think the report really provides good grounds for reflecting and answering the challenges that lie ahead of us. I thank the rapporteur for a very balanced approach and the many suggestions on how we should move forward – but it will not be easy."@en4

"Fru formand! Spørgsmålet om kernekraft er måske et af de spørgsmål, der giver anledning til størst splittelse mellem de europæiske borgere og medlemsstaterne, og dette aspekt er også blevet berørt under forhandlingen i dag. Hvis vi ser objektivt på Euratom-traktaten, hvilket der er gjort i betænkningen, kan vi se, at den indeholder mange vigtige foranstaltninger. For det første mente alle for 50 år siden, at kernekraftenergi var så billig, at det ikke engang ville være nødvendigt at måle den. Euratom-traktaten sikrede rammerne for og støtten til forskningen, der helt klart har bidraget til udviklingen af sikkerhedsforanstaltninger og foranstaltninger til håndtering af nukleart affald. Euratom-traktaten skabte også grundlag for ikkespredningsordningen. Ingen andre steder i verden er sikkerhedsforanstaltningerne så udbyggede som i EU, og det skyldes Euratom-traktaten. Vi ved, at der vil blive bygget atomkraftværker fremover, herunder i EU. De problemer, der opstod i forbindelse med kernekraftværket i Temelin, vil ikke være enestående, og vi er virkelig nødt til at skabe øget konsensus om vores målsætninger på kernekraftområdet i EU. Hr. Hudacký nævnte i denne forbindelse Nuclear Forum. Det er et vigtigt aspekt, hvis vi skal forsøge at skabe konsensus på dette meget vigtige område, navnlig i lyset af de globale udfordringer. Jeg møder mange repræsentanter fra såvel medlemsstater som tredjelande, der meget gerne vil anvende kernekraft. De ønsker ikke blot at anvende energi i den sidste fase, idet de er interesseret i hele cyklussen. Hvis EU ikke udviser viljefasthed i forbindelse med håndteringen af de forskellige aspekter i den nukleare cyklus, tror jeg, at verden vil blive et langt farligere sted at leve. Jeg mener derfor, at betænkningen virkelig er et godt udgangspunkt for vores overvejelser og for håndtering af fremtidens udfordringer. Jeg takker ordføreren for en meget afbalanceret tilgang og for de mange forslag til, hvordan vi kommer videre - men det bliver ikke nemt."@da2
". Frau Präsidentin! Die Frage der Kernenergie ist vielleicht eine der größten Streitfragen zwischen den EU-Bürgern und den Mitgliedstaaten. Das ist auch in der heutigen Aussprache an vielen Stellen zum Ausdruck gekommen. Wenn wir den Euratom-Vertrag allerdings objektiv betrachten, was der Bericht tut, dann sehen wir, dass er im Grunde viele wichtige Punkte regelte. Zunächst einmal herrschte vor 50 Jahren die Ansicht vor, die Kernerzeugung würde dermaßen billige Energie liefern, dass man auf Stromzähler gänzlich verzichten könnte. Der Euratom-Vertrag hat den Rahmen für die Unterstützung von Forschungsarbeiten geboten, die zweifelsohne dazu beitrugen, Sicherheitsvorschriften und Verfahren zur Behandlung von nuklearem Abfall zu entwickeln. Ferner diente der Euratom-Vertrag als Grundlage für die Nichtweiterverbreitung von Kernwaffen. Nirgendwo sonst in der Welt gelten strengere Sicherheitsvorschriften als in der Europäischen Union, und das haben wir dem Euratom-Vertrag zu verdanken. Wenn wir in die Zukunft schauen, dann wissen wir, dass Kernkraftwerke weiterhin gebaut werden, auch in der Europäischen Union. Die Streitigkeiten um das Kernkraftwerk Temelín werden kein Einzelfall bleiben. Daher müssen wir unbedingt einen größeren Konsens darüber erzielen, wie wir die Kernenergie in der Europäischen Union nutzen wollen. Herr Hudacký kam in diesem Zusammenhang auf das Nuklearforum zu sprechen. Dies ist ein wichtiges Instrument für die Erzielung eines Konsenses in diesem Schlüsselbereich, vor allem was die weltweiten Herausforderungen betrifft. Ich habe viele Vertreter nicht nur aus den Mitgliedstaaten, sondern auch aus Drittländern getroffen, die lebhaftes Interesse an der Nutzung der Kernenergie haben. Dabei möchten sie diese Energie nicht nur für die Endnutzung bereitstellen, sondern den vollständigen Kreislauf beherrschen. Wenn die Europäische Union keinen festen Standpunkt einnimmt, was all die Fragen im Zusammenhang mit dem nuklearen Brennstoffkreislauf betrifft, dann wird die Welt nach meinem Dafürhalten ein wesentlich gefährlicherer Ort werden. Daher bietet der Bericht meines Erachtens eine solide Grundlage, um Überlegungen in dieser Richtung anzustellen und eine Antwort auf die vor uns liegenden Herausforderungen zu finden. Ich danke dem Berichterstatter für einen sehr ausgewogenen Ansatz und die vielen Vorschläge für unser weiteres Vorgehen. Dies wird allerdings kein Zuckerschlecken sein."@de9
". Κυρία Πρόεδρε, το ζήτημα της πυρηνικής ενέργειας είναι ίσως από τα πλέον διχαστικά μεταξύ των πολιτών της Ευρώπης και των κρατών μελών, και η σημερινή συζήτηση επεκτάθηκε αρκετά και προς αυτήν την κατεύθυνση. Ωστόσο, εάν μελετήσουμε αντικειμενικά τη Συνθήκη Ευρατόμ, κάτι που γίνεται στην έκθεση, τότε θα δούμε ότι προσέφερε πλήθος σημαντικών πραγμάτων. Καταρχάς, όλοι πίστευαν πριν από 50 χρόνια ότι η πυρηνική ενέργεια παρείχε τόσο φθηνή ενέργεια, ώστε δεν θα χρειαζόταν καν να μετράται. Η Συνθήκη Ευρατόμ παρείχε το πλαίσιο και την υποστήριξη για την έρευνα η οποία οπωσδήποτε προώθησε τις διασφαλίσεις, την ασφάλεια και την κατεργασία πυρηνικών αποβλήτων. Η Συνθήκη Ευρατόμ προώθησε επίσης τη μη διάδοση των πυρηνικών όπλων. Πουθενά αλλού στον κόσμο το σύστημα διασφαλίσεων δεν είναι τόσο ισχυρό όσο στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση, και τούτο χάρη στη Συνθήκη Ευρατόμ. Εάν κοιτάξουμε προς το μέλλον, γνωρίζουμε ότι θα κατασκευάζονται πυρηνικοί σταθμοί, ακόμη και εντός της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης. Τα ζητήματα που προέκυψαν με το Temelín δεν πρόκειται να είναι τα μόνα, και όντως χρειάζεται να εργαστούμε στην κατεύθυνση της επίτευξης ευρύτερης συναίνεσης ως προς το τι επιθυμούμε να κατορθώσουμε στον τομέα της πυρηνικής ενέργειας στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση. Εν προκειμένω, ο αξιότιμος βουλευτής κ. Hudacký ανέφερε το Πυρηνικό Φόρουμ. Αυτό αποτελεί σημαντική παράμετρο στην προσπάθεια να επιτευχθεί συναίνεση στον σπουδαιότατο αυτόν τομέα, ιδίως σε συνάρτηση προς τις παγκόσμιες προκλήσεις. Συναντώ πολλούς εκπροσώπους όχι μόνο από τα κράτη μέλη αλλά και από τρίτες χώρες, οι οποίοι εκφράζουν ζωηρό ενδιαφέρον να ξεκινήσουν τη χρήση πυρηνικής ενέργειας, και μάλιστα όχι μόνο αξιοποιώντας το τελικό στάδιό της αλλά και ολόκληρο τον κύκλο της. Πιστεύω ότι εάν η Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση δεν λάβει δυναμική στάση απέναντι σε όλα τα ζητήματα που αφορούν τον πυρηνικό κύκλο, ο πλανήτης θα καταστεί πολύ πιο επικίνδυνος. Επομένως, νομίζω ότι η έκθεση προσφέρει αξιόλογο πλαίσιο για τον προβληματισμό και την αντιμετώπιση των προκλήσεων του μέλλοντος. Ευχαριστώ τον εισηγητή για την εξαιρετικά ισορροπημένη προσέγγιση και το πλήθος προτάσεων όσον αφορά το πώς πρέπει να προχωρήσουμε – αλλά δεν θα είναι εύκολο."@el10
"Señora Presidenta, la cuestión de la energía nuclear es quizás una de las que más dividen a los ciudadanos de Europa y los Estados miembros y el debate de hoy también ha tratado esta cuestión en sentido amplio. Sin embargo, si examinamos objetivamente el Tratado Euratom, como hace el informe, entonces veremos que este estableció muchas cosas importantes. En primer lugar, hace 50 años todo el mundo creía que la energía nuclear suministraba una energía tan barata que no habría ni siquiera necesidad de medirla. El Tratado Euratom creó el marco y el apoyo a la investigación que permitió desarrollar finalmente salvaguardias, normas de seguridad y tratamientos de residuos nucleares. El Tratado Euratom daba también razones para la no proliferación. En ninguna parte del mundo es el régimen de salvaguardias tan estricto como en la Unión Europea, y esto se debe al Tratado Euratom. Mirando al futuro, está claro que se construirán centrales nucleares, incluso en la Unión Europea. Los problemas que hemos tenido con Temelín no serán únicos, y realmente, necesitamos trabajar por un mayor consenso sobre lo que queremos lograr con la energía nuclear en la Unión Europea. En conexión con esto, el señor Hudacký ha mencionado el Foro Nuclear. Es un elemento de peso para intentar crear un consenso en torno a este ámbito sumamente importante, en particular frente a los desafíos globales. Me he reunido con muchos representantes, no solo de Estados miembros, sino también de terceros países que están muy interesados en comenzar a usar la energía nuclear y al mismo tiempo no solo utilizar su energía para la fase final, sino también dominar la totalidad de los ciclos. Creo que si la Unión Europea no adopta una posición firme a la hora de abordar todos los temas relacionados con el ciclo nuclear, el mundo será un lugar mucho más peligroso. Por ello, creo que el informe proporciona realmente una buena base para reflexionar y responder a los desafíos que se nos avecinan. Doy las gracias al ponente por un enfoque muy equilibrado y por las muchas sugerencias sobre el modo de avanzar, pero no será fácil."@es21

". Arvoisa puhemies, ydinenergia lienee yksi Euroopan unionin kansalaisia ja jäsenvaltioita eniten jakavista kysymyksistä. Tätä on sivuttu myös tämän päivän keskustelussa. Kun Euratom-sopimusta tarkastellaan kuitenkin puolueettomasti, kuten mietinnössä, sillä havaitaan saadun aikaan monia tärkeitä asioita. Ensinnäkin kaikki uskoivat 50 vuotta sitten, että ydinenergialla voitaisiin tuottaa niin halpaa energiaa, ettei sitä tarvitsisi edes mitata. Euratom-sopimus tarjosi kehyksen ja tuen tutkimukselle, jolla kehitettiin ydinmateriaalivalvontaa, turvallisuutta ja ydinjätteiden käsittelyä. Euratom-sopimukseen perustuu myös ydinaineiden leviämisen estäminen. Valvontajärjestelmä ei ole missään muualla maailmassa yhtä tiukka kuin Euroopan unionissa, ja tämä on Euratom-sopimuksen ansiota. Tulevaisuuteen katsahdettaessa tiedetään, että ydinvoimaloita rakennetaan myös Euroopan unioniin. Temelínin ongelmat eivät ole ainutlaatuisia. Meidän on todella pyrittävä löytämään suurempi yhteisymmärrys siitä, mitä ydinvoimalla halutaan saavuttaa Euroopan unionissa. Jäsen Hudacký mainitsi tässä yhteydessä atomienergiafoorumin. Se on tärkeä tekijä etsittäessä yhteisymmärrystä tällä hyvin tärkeällä alalla etenkin maailmanlaajuisten haasteiden suhteen. Tapaan paljon edustajia sekä jäsenvaltioista että unionin ulkopuolisista maista, jotka ovat innokkaita aloittamaan ydinvoiman käytön – ei siis pelkästään lopputuotteen käyttöä vaan koko ydinpolttoainekierron. Ellei Euroopan unioni ota tiukasti kantaa kaikkiin ydinpolttoainekiertoa koskeviin kysymyksiin, maailmasta tulee mielestäni paljon vaarallisempi paikka. Näin ollen mietintö tarjoaa mielestäni todella hyvän perustan, jonka pohjalta voidaan pohtia ja etsiä ratkaisuja edessä oleviin haasteisiin. Kiitän esittelijää erittäin tasapuolisesta lähestymistavasta ja niistä monista ehdotuksista, joita hän esitti tulevaa varten. Tästä ei tule kuitenkaan helppoa."@fi7
". Madame la Présidente, l’énergie nucléaire est probablement l’un des questions qui divisent le plus les citoyens européens et les États membres et le débat d’aujourd’hui a aussi largement reflété cet aspect. Cela dit, si nous examinons objectivement le traité Euratom, ce que fait le rapport, nous verrons qu’il a fourni un grand nombre de choses importantes. Tout d’abord, tout le monde pensait il y a cinquante ans que l’énergie nucléaire fournissait de l’électricité à si bas prix qu’il ne serait même pas nécessaire de l’évaluer. Le traité Euratom a fourni à la recherche le cadre et le soutien qui ont permis de mettre en œuvre des garanties, la sûreté et le traitement des déchets nucléaires. Le traité Euratom poursuit aussi des objectifs de non-prolifération. Aucune autre région du monde ne dispose d’un système de garanties aussi puissant que dans l’Union européenne et c’est au traité Euratom que nous le devons. Si nous nous penchons vers l’avenir, nous savons que des centrales nucléaires seront construites, y compris dans l’Union. Les problèmes rencontrés à Temelin se reproduiront et nous devons vraiment œuvrer à un consensus plus fort autour de ce que nous voudrions faire de l’énergie nucléaire dans l’Union européenne. À cet égard, l’honorable député M. Hudacký a fait allusion au Forum nucléaire. C’est un élément important pour tenter de former un consensus dans ce domaine très important, en particulier face aux défis mondiaux. Je rencontre un grand nombre de représentants non seulement d’États membres, mais aussi de pays tiers désireux de recourir à l’énergie nucléaire, mais qui ne veulent pas disposer de l’énergie pour la dernière étape, mais bien s’approprier l’ensemble du cycle. Je crois que si l’Union européenne n’adopte pas une position forte face à tous les problèmes liés au cycle nucléaire, le monde deviendra beaucoup plus dangereux. Par conséquent, je pense que le rapport fournit une bonne base pour réfléchir et faire face aux défis qui nous attendent. Je remercie le rapporteur pour son approche très mesurée et ses nombreuses suggestions sur la manière dont nous devrions avancer - même si ce ne sera pas facile."@fr8

"Signora Presidente, la questione dell’energia nucleare è forse il tema che crea il maggior numero di divisioni tra i cittadini europei e gli Stati membri, e il dibattito odierno si è ampiamente soffermato sulla questione. Tuttavia, se esaminiamo oggettivamente il Trattato EURATOM, come fa la relazione, ci rendiamo conto che ha permesso di conseguire molti obiettivi importanti. In primo luogo, cinquant’anni fa tutti credevano che il nucleare fornisse energia a un costo così basso che sarebbe stato superfluo persino misurarla. Il Trattato EURATOM ha fornito il quadro e il sostegno per la ricerca che ha indubbiamente sviluppato tutele, sicurezza e il trattamento delle scorie nucleari. Dal Trattato EURATOM è inoltre scaturita la non proliferazione. In nessuna parte del mondo il sistema delle tutele è forte come nell’Unione europea, e questo grazie al Trattato EURATOM. Se guardiamo al futuro, sappiamo che saranno costruite centrali nucleari, anche nell’Unione europea. I problemi che abbiamo avuto a Temelín non rimarranno un caso isolato, e dobbiamo davvero adoperarci per ottenere un maggiore consenso sugli obiettivi che vorremmo raggiungere con l’energia nucleare nell’Unione europea. A tale proposito, l’onorevole Hudacký ha citato il nucleare. Si tratta di un elemento importante per cercare di giungere a un consenso in questo importantissimo settore, soprattutto in termini di sfide globali. Incontro diversi rappresentanti, non solo di Stati membri, ma anche di paesi terzi, che sono impazienti di iniziare a utilizzare l’energia nucleare, non solo di utilizzare la loro energia per la fase finale, ma per i cicli interi. A mio avviso, se l’Unione europea non assumerà una posizione forte per affrontare tutte le questioni correlate al ciclo nucleare, il mondo sarà un posto molto più pericoloso. Credo quindi che la relazione costituisca davvero un buon punto di partenza per riflettere sulle sfide che ci attendono e dare loro risposta. Ringrazio il relatore per avere adottato un approccio molto equilibrato e per i numerosi suggerimenti avanzati riguardo alla strada da seguire, ma non sarà un’impresa facile."@it12

". Mevrouw de Voorzitter, kernenergie behoort waarschijnlijk tot de kwesties die de meeste verdeeldheid veroorzaken onder Europese burgers en de lidstaten, en dat is duidelijk gebleken in het debat van vandaag. Als we het Euratom-Verdrag echter objectief beschouwen - zoals ook in dit verslag wordt gedaan - zien we dat er in veel belangrijke zaken wordt voorzien. Ten eerste was iedereen er vijftig jaar geleden van overtuigd dat kernenergie zoveel goedkope energie zou opleveren, dat het niet eens nodig zou zijn om dit te meten. Het Euratom-Verdrag bood een raamwerk en de ondersteuning voor het onderzoek dat zou voorzien in de voorzorgsmaatregelen, veiligheid en de behandeling van kernafval. Het Euratom-Verdrag vormde ook het fundament voor non-proliferatie. Nergens ter wereld is het systeem van veiligheidsmaatregelen zo streng als in de Europese Unie, en dat hebben we te danken aan het Euratom-Verdrag. Als we naar de toekomst kijken, weten we dat er nieuwe kerncentrales gebouwd zullen worden, ook binnen de Europese Unie. Er zullen zich in de toekomst vergelijkbare kwesties als die in Temelín voordoen, en we moeten ons inspannen voor een betere consensus over wat we willen bereiken op het vlak van kernenergie binnen de Europese Unie. De heer Hudacký noemde in dit verband het Nucleaire Forum. Dat vormt een belangrijk aspect in het streven naar consensus over dit zeer belangrijke onderwerp, met name in termen van mondiale uitdagingen. Ik spreek veel vertegenwoordigers van lidstaten en van landen buiten de Gemeenschap die streven naar de toepassing van kernenergie, waarbij deze energie niet alleen voor het eindstadium, maar ook voor de volledige cyclus wordt toegepast. Naar mijn mening wordt de wereld minder veilig als de Europese Unie geen uitgesproken standpunt inneemt over alle kwesties die betrekking hebben op de nucleaire cyclus. Daarom vind ik dat het verslag een daadwerkelijk goede basis biedt voor verdere reflectie en voor het aangaan van de toekomstige uitdagingen. Ik wil de rapporteur danken voor een zeer evenwichtige aanpak en de vele suggesties voor mogelijke vervolgstappen, maar het zal niet makkelijk zijn."@nl3

"Senhora Presidente, a questão da energia nuclear é porventura um dos principais pontos de divergência entre os cidadãos e entre os Estados-Membros da União Europeia, e também o debate de hoje acabou, de certo modo, por reflectir essa realidade. Contudo, se pensarmos no Tratado Euratom de uma forma objectiva, como fez o relator, veremos que este tratado permitiu assegurar muitas coisas importantes. Em primeiro lugar, há cinquenta anos atrás, todos achavam que a energia nuclear produzia energia tão barata que nem sequer era necessário medi-la. O Tratado Euratom previu um quadro de investigação, bem como o apoio ao mesmo, o que permitiu desenvolver medidas de salvaguarda, de segurança e de tratamento dos resíduos nucleares. O Tratado Euratom também contribuiu para reforçar a protecção no domínio da não-proliferação nuclear. Em parte alguma do mundo o sistema de salvaguardas neste capítulo é tão forte como na União Europeia, e é ao Tratado Euratom que isso se deve. Olhando o futuro, sabemos que serão construídas novas centrais nucleares, inclusive na União Europeia. Os problemas que enfrentámos em relação à central de Temelín não são um caso isolado, e teremos realmente de nos esforçar para obter um maior consenso sobre quais as nossas metas no plano do nuclear, a nível da União Europeia. O senhor deputado Hudacký referiu-se, a este propósito, ao Fórum Nuclear. A criação de um fórum nuclear europeu daria certamente um contributo importante para a construção de um consenso em torno desta questão de peso, nomeadamente em termos de reflexão sobre os desafios globais. Mantenho encontros com representantes de numerosos países, Estados-Membros da UE e não só, fortemente empenhados em começar a utilizar a energia nuclear, e a utilizá-la não apenas na fase final mas de forma a cobrir a totalidade do ciclo do combustível nuclear. Sou de opinião que, se a União Europeia não assumir uma posição de peso no tratamento de todas as questões relativas ao ciclo do combustível nuclear, o mundo se tornará um lugar muito mais perigoso. Creio, pois, que o relatório oferece boas pistas para reflexão e para dar respostas aos desafios que temos pela frente. Agradeço ao relator a abordagem tão equilibrada que traça no seu relatório a par das inúmeras sugestões sobre qual o caminho a seguir – que não será isento de escolhos."@pt17
"Madam President, the issue of nuclear energy is perhaps one of the most divisive issues between the citizens of Europe and the Member States, and today’s debate has also broadly touched upon that. However, if we look at the Euratom Treaty objectively, which the report does, then we will see that it provided for many important things. Firstly, everybody believed 50 years ago that nuclear energy provided such cheap energy that there would be no need even to measure it. The Euratom Treaty provided the framework and support for research that definitely developed safeguards, safety and the treatment of nuclear waste. The Euratom Treaty also gave grounds for non-proliferation. Nowhere in the world is the system of safeguards as strong as in the European Union, and that is because of the Euratom Treaty. If we look to the future, we know that nuclear power stations will be built, including in the European Union. The issues we have had with Temelín will not be unique, and we really need to work towards greater consensus on what we would like to achieve with nuclear energy in the European Union. In this connection, the Honourable Member Mr Hudacký mentioned the Nuclear Forum. That is an important element in trying to build consensus in this very important area, particularly in terms of global challenges. I meet a lot of representatives not only of Member States but also of third countries who are very keen to start using nuclear energy, at the same time not only using their energy for the final stage but also having the whole cycles. I believe if the European Union does not take a strong position on addressing all the issues related to the nuclear cycle, the world will be a much more dangerous place. Therefore, I think the report really provides good grounds for reflecting and answering the challenges that lie ahead of us. I thank the rapporteur for a very balanced approach and the many suggestions on how we should move forward – but it will not be easy."@ro18

"Fru talman! Frågan om kärnkraft är förmodligen en av de mest konfliktskapande frågorna för EU-medborgarna och medlemsstaterna, och dagens debatt har också i hög grad antytt det. Om vi emellertid ser objektivt på Euratomfördraget, vilket man gör i betänkandet, kommer vi att se att det tillhandahåller många viktiga saker. För det första trodde alla för 50 år sedan att kärnkraft gav så billig energi att det inte ens skulle finnas något behov av att mäta den. Euratomfördraget tillhandahöll ramen och stödet för forskning som helt klart utvecklade skyddet, säkerheten och hanteringen av radioaktivt avfall. Euratomfördraget låg även till grund för att hindra spridning. Det finns inte något system i världen som har så kraftiga säkerhetskontroller som i EU, och det är tack vare Euratomfördraget. Om vi ser till framtiden vet vi att man kommer att bygga kärnkraftverk, även i EU. Problemen som vi hade med Temelín kommer inte att vara en engångsföreteelse. Vi måste verkligen arbeta mot större samförstånd om vad vi vill åstadkomma med kärnkraft i EU. I samband med detta nämnde Ján Hudacký International Nuclear Forum. Det är ett viktigt verktyg för att försöka upprätta samförstånd på detta viktiga område, särskilt när det gäller de globala utmaningarna. Jag träffade många företrädare, inte bara för medlemsstaterna utan även för tredjeländer, som är mycket angelägna om att börja använda kärnkraft samtidigt som de inte bara vill använda sin energi i det sista skedet, utan genom hela cykeln. Om inte EU intar en stark position när det gäller att ta upp samtliga problem relaterade till kärnbränslecykeln anser jag att jorden kommer att bli en mycket farligare plats. Därför anser jag att detta betänkande verkligen tillhandahåller goda grunder för att fundera över och besvara de utmaningar som ligger framför oss. Tack till föredraganden för en mycket balanserad inställning och för de många förslagen om hur vi ska gå vidare, men det kommer inte att bli lätt."@sv22
