Kuwait fulfilled obligations to IAEA Convention on Nuclear Safety


VIENNA, Sept 22 (KUNA) -- Kuwait has fulfilled its obligations to the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) Convention on Nuclear Safety, said Kuwait-IAEA liaison officer Dr. Nader Al-Awadhi on Saturday.


Speaking to KUNA on the sideline of his participation in the 62nd IAEA General Conference, Dr. Al-Awadhi said that Kuwait's national report on nuclear safety was in compliance with IAEA's standards.


The national Kuwait plan within nuclear safety focused on development of institutional, human, and technical resources to monitor and secure radioactive materials, safeguarding it against mal-use and illicit trading.


Kuwait and the IAEA are looking into means to further bolster the Kuwaiti national nuclear safety plan, training various institutes and ministries in the GCC country to implement nuclear safety procedures, said Al-Awadhi who praised the current level of cooperation between the two sides.


He indicated that the two entities did meet recently to focus on the Kuwaiti plans and programs and they agreed to hold various activities within this frame in Kuwait and elsewhere.


The 62nd IAEA General Conference concluded recently in Vienna, adopting several resolutions to bolster cooperation amongst the agency's members and enhancing global nuclear security and safety measures.
