Government Waiting for Expert Opinion on LNG Terminal

By 1 March 2018

ZAGREB, March 1, 2018 - Environment Protection Minister Tomislav Ćorić said ahead of the government session on Thursday that the future LNG terminal on the northern Adriatic island of Krk was a strategic project and that the government needs to wait for experts to voice their opinion about the project.

"As for protests, I will once again reiterate it is legitimate to express dissatisfaction at all levels," the minister said adding, however, that it was not right to manipulate the truth and make false accusations and that the public should be aware of that.

Ćorić said he welcomed debates and discussion, but in the end it was the opinion of experts that mattered. "I believe this is in the interest of all of us," he added.

Ćorić also said he expected that consultants for the INA oil company would be selected in the next two to three weeks.
