At last Egypt permits French Plane carrier Clemenceau
Egypt-France, Environment, 1/16/2006
Egypt on Sunday permitted the passage of the French battleship plane carrier Clemenceau to pass through the Suez canal heading towards India after France had provided documents that proved it is not harmful for the environment.
The Egyptian Middle East news Agency quoted the ministry of the environment as saying that the plane carrier Clemenceau does not violate the Basal agreement for 1989 which bans the export of harmful waste.
A spokesman for the French defense ministry said earlier that Paris handed over Cairo all necessary documents to permit the passage of the plane carrier, including a document proving it does not violate Basal agreement as well as all technical data on the time it takes for it to pass the canal.
Worthy mentioning that the giant carrier, which remained in service for more than 40 years heads for India, where it is to be dismantled at the port of Jojarat estate. A matter which elicited the attention of environmental protection organizations under the pretext that the ship is composed of material endangering the environment.
