IAEA: There is no best branch for investments, than reduction of risks of nuclear weapon distribution
There is no best branch for investments, than reduction of risks of distribution of nuclear weapon. Start of BLEU is an important milestone in the field of global nuclear safety and non-proliferation, the former senator of the USA, and the cochairman of NTI Sam Nunn commented the concentration of uranium in the Kazakhstan bank, BNews.kz correspondent reported.
"After expeditious use, BLEU will help to advance an important mission for non-proliferation that will promote global safety and stability. There is no best branch for investments, than reduction of risks of distribution of nuclear weapon. Start of BLEU is an important milestone in the field of global nuclear safety and non-proliferation. The bank will play an important role in reduction of nuclear threat and to be an example in favor of advantage of the international cooperation against the background of fragility of our world which is on the verge between cooperation and accident," the former senator of the USA, and the cochairman of NTI Sam Nunn told.
According to the IAEA, today dozens of the countries are interested in development of nuclear power. The technology of uranium enrichment running fuel for the nuclear reactor can produce material for a nuclear bomb also. If each country interested in nuclear energy uses own resources on enrichment, the risk of distribution of nuclear weapon will ncrease considerably.
"Start of BLEU is an unprecedented international step which will reduce nuclear threat and will make the world safer. I consider that today's event gives us an additional impulse for development of this step with much more comprehensive and vigorous approach to a wide range of questions of a fuel cycle. We are committed to similar success in business of involvement of the international community to acceptance of necessary measures for minimization of risks of distribution," the former United States Secretary of Energy, the cochairman and the chief executive officer of NTI Ernest J. Moniz told.
The vice-president of NTI Andrew Benyavsky has noted that BLEU doesn't limit the right of the countries for development of own objects of a nuclear fuel cycle, but we hope that it will give them the chance twice to think before beginning expensive activities for enrichment
The initiative of reduction of nuclear threat (NTI) is a non-profit organization purpose of which is to protect life, means of livelihood and the environment for future generations from the accidents connected with use of weapons of mass defeat of different types: nuclear, biological, chemical and cyberweapon.
