Angela Merkel on ending nuclear power plant sites in Germany:
Speaking at a meeting of the Christian Social Union (CSU), Bavarian sister party to her conservatives, Merkel said a 2022 date proposed by the CSU was appropriate and that her government will eventually fix a date for Germany’s nuclear exit.
“I find that the timeframe which the CSU sees as an option is an appropriate timeframe,” she said at the event in Bavaria.
“People want to know there is a concrete end date and so we will speak of such a concrete end date,” Merkel added. Her cabinet plans to make a decision on June 6.
