(ANSA) - BELGRADE, JUL 5 - The association of Slovenian nuclear experts urged Slovenian MEPs to support the inclusion of nuclear energy in the EU taxonomy before a debate in the European Parliament on gas and nuclear energy as green investments, warning that its exclusion could be harmful to Slovenia, the Slovenian news agency STA reported.

In a letter to MEPs, the association's president Tomaz Zagar stated that the organization supports the delegated regulation sponsored by the European Commission that would add nuclear energy to the list of sustainable technologies.

Furthermore, the Bulgarian Energy Ministry announced on Monday that Bulgaria had joined 20 energy-related trade unions from Belgium, Czechia, Finland, France, Hungary, Latvia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Croatia in support of nuclear energy in the EU's taxonomy, through a letter signed by the Energy ministries from several Central- and Eastern Europe countries, the Bulgarian agency BTA reported.
