World has 200 years of uranium reserves - Germany


BERLIN (Reuters) - There are enough global reserves of uranium to generate nuclear power for the next 200 years at least, Germany's Economy Ministry said on Thursday.
"An objective view shows that global uranium resources will allow it to be used to generate nuclear power gloabally for the next 200 years at least," the ministry said in a statement.
Germany Economy Minister Michael Glos, a member of the conservatives, favours a rethink of the country's plans to phase out nuclear power by 2020, and has clashed openly with Social Democrat Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel on the issue.
Gabriel has in the past questioned how long uranium supplies will last.
