Deputy CEO of ROSATOM held annual scheduled consultations with IAEA Director General

On the 9th of February, 2016 Deputy CEO for International Affairs of ROSATOM Nikolai Spasskiy held annual scheduled consultations with IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano.

Also, separate meeting were held with the IAEA deputy director generals for nuclear power, human resources, sciences and applications, and nuclear safety and security. On the Russian side the meetings were attended by Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the International Organizations in Vienna Vladimir Voronkov and Deputy Chairman of Rostechnadzor Alexei Ferapontov.

Given the interagency nature of the Russian delegation, nearly all the agenda of cooperation with the IAEA was discussed. The special attention was paid to Russian participation in the IAEA programs and projects and Russian staff representation in the Secretariat. Technical aspects of implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Actions on the Iranian nuclear program approved by UN Security Council’s Resolution 2231 were considered separately.

The participants evaluated the held consultations as timely and useful. This practice will be continued.
