U.S. and Russian Experts Call for Mutual Cooperation to Bolster
IAEA Non-Proliferation Efforts in New Joint Report
The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and the Center for Energy and Security Studies (CENESS) have released a report calling for increased cooperation between the United States and Russia to support and uphold the work of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The Future of IAEA Safeguards: Rebuilding the Vienna Spirit through Russian-U.S. Expert Dialogue, is a product of a two-year project launched by CENESS and NTI, bringing together leading experts from Russia and the United States to build mutual understanding of the political and technical challenges to fully implementing the IAEA’s safeguards mission and to build support for more productive cooperation and collaboration between the two countries in this area. The IAEA’s work in verifying safeguards agreements is key to upholding many international agreements, including the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
Australian APLN member John Carlson participated in the project on the U.S. side.
