Temelàƒ­n output rising, border blockades continue

Nov. 03, 2000 (Prague Business Journal)à‚–Temelàƒn increased power output yesterday to 2.5% and expects to surpass the 5% level next week, pending approval from the State Nuclear Safety Authority.

The nuclear power plant says only minor defects requiring no repairs have been found thus far.

Meanwhile, Austrian opponents began another blockade of three border crossings yesterday and will be joined by others today to stop traffic on the entire Czech-Austrian border until Monday evening.

PM Milos Zeman said he would cancel a planned visit to Vienna at the end of November unless renewed blockades are halted. Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schàƒ¼ssel appealed on activists to stop threatening the ongoing dialogue with Prague (Hospodarske Noviny 2, Mlada Fronta 2, Lidove Noviny 1, Pravo 1).
