Swiss Federal Minister Moritz Leuenberger explained the Swiss site selection process for deep geological repositories to the Environmental Committee of the German Parliament. Reactions were extremely positive.

Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel said «Switzerland is showing how the best possible site for a radioactive waste repository can be found by following a transparent and open procedure that is based on scientific criteria». He welcomed the fact that opportunities are available to Germany and the southern regions of the country bordering Switzerland to participate in the process and underlined his intention to ensure that German involvement would be actively pursued as part of the neighbourly relationship between the two countries.
