MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

It has just been announced that Australia, the US and the UK are planning a major trilateral project in a highly sensitive area. It requires the most careful thought and additional information. At this stage, we would like to express some preliminary considerations.

The Russian Federation largely shares the logic and line of thought of our Chinese colleagues regarding this new story.

It is safe to say that such sensitive projects require the closest and most careful supervision by the IAEA. It is imperative that, under all circumstances, all the fundamental statutory rights and tasks of the IAEA are scrupulously observed, and that the NPT Safeguards Agreement between Australia and the Agency is strictly observed. It is critical to ensure the necessary transparency in this matter so that the Agency’s Member States have a complete picture of what is happening.

We reserve the right to comment on this topic in more detail in the future.

Thank you Madam Chairperson.
