The new German government does not want "dangerous nuclear reactors" at the borders

 According to media reports, there is a fragment in the coalition agreement of the new German government which indicates that Berlin will "act to shut down dangerous nuclear reactors" located near the borders of Germany.

On the 10th anniversary of the accident at the Fukushima plant, the German environment ministry said that "it will actively promote the involvement of other European countries in the nuclear shutdown process (...). The state-funded new nuclear power plants in the EU are not in the interests of Germany, nor in the interests of climate protection and energy transformation."

It can be safely assumed that the nuclear power plant built in Poland will fit into hazardous reactors.

Meantime President Emmanuel Macron announced in early November that he would be building new nuclear reactors. This is to help the French reduce their dependence on foreign energy supplies and achieve climate goals.

The Netherlands also has nuclear plans that run counter to German policy. The government there said last year that nuclear energy will be needed to achieve the climate goals of the Paris Agreement. The Dutch want to build ten new nuclear reactors for this purpose.

It seems that Germany will try to bully its neighbors to give up their energy independence and make them dependent on Germany and Russia for their energy needs.
