Serbia has removed all the depleted uranium waste left from NATO bombing in 1999, Serbian Minister of Environmental Protection Sasa Dragin said on April.
Addressing an event to mark Earth Day in Belgrade, Dragin said that all the remnants of depleted uranium bombs have been removed by the Environment Ministry and other institutions.
Nine laws on environment protection harmonized with EU legislation have been adopted, and nine more are in parliamentary procedure, he said, adding that Serbia is a country of contrast between undisturbed nature and extremely polluted zones.
During its 78-day air strikes on Serbia's predecessor Yugoslavia in 1999, the NATO dropped 31,000 missiles and bombs containing depleted uranium, a byproduct of radioactive enriched uranium.
In Kosovo, the NATO has identified some 112 sites where it acknowledges using depleted uranium munitions. NATO has not given the government in Belgrade a comprehensive list for the rest of Serbia.
