IAEA General Conference Starts in Vienna

(Vienna) – 57th Session of the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has commenced in Vienna. UAE Permanent Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Ambassador H.E. Hamad Al Kaabi is leading UAE delegation to the Conference.
During the conference, UAE affirmed that it has taken significant steps in the development of its nuclear power programme and the related infrastructure, following the IAEA guidance and international best practices. “The construction of the first nuclear reactor in the UAE began in July 2012 following a detailed evaluation of the design, which took into consideration early lessons learned from Fukushima Daiichi accident. The UAE is the first country to start the construction of its first nuclear power plant in 27 years. The national nuclear energy programme is progressing well, with the start of construction of the 2nd unit in May of this year,” said Ambassador Hamad Al Kaabi.
He added, “The IAEA plays an essential role in fulfilling its duty to promote the use of peaceful applications of nuclear energy, which is a vital aspect in ensuring today’s global energy security that directly contributes to economic development”.
