HAMBURG - Czech President Vaclav Klaus fired a broadside at Germany's energy policy on Tuesday, calling its withdrawal from nuclear power "absurd" and saying his country was heading in the opposite direction.

The comments, unusually candid for the leader of a government diplomatically close to its bigger EU neighbor, came in a speech about Europe given to a business and trade group in the northern German city of Hamburg.
