Tempers are frayed in Prague and Vienna over the Czech nuclear power station in Temelin near the Austrian border. The Austrian press is up in arms this time because of the Czech decision to build a stockage facility for radioactive waste in the middle of the national park of Böhmerwald – which straddles both countries. Der Standard accuses the Czechs of breaking the terms of the Melk Accords, which provide that Prague must ensure proper maintenance of the nuclear power station and inform its neighbour of any modifications. Vienna, however, only lately learned about the waste facility through the press. "It seems that the Czechs give the same importance to the accord as it would to a Bohemian dumpling falling from a plate," complains the Standard. Faced with local resistance, "Prague takes the easy option and chooses a military zone in the park, far from all protest."
