STORYLINE:

From 1-5 of July some 35 Ministers and over 1,200 participants from more than 100 States will meet at the headquarters of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria to discuss ways to strengthen nuclear security worldwide.

The risk that nuclear or other radioactive material could be used in malicious acts is regarded as a serious threat to international peace and security.

The Director of the IAEA’s Office of Nuclear Security, Khammar Mrabit, explained the meaning of the term.

SOUNDBITE (English) Khammar Mrabit, Director of the IAEA’s Office of Nuclear Security:
“Nuclear security is the measures taken to prevent nuclear and other radioactive materials, and associated facilities and activities from falling into the wrong hands.”

The IAEA has been active in the nuclear security field since the early 1970s. Its Office of Nuclear Security maintains a global authoritative database which records incidents and trafficking involving nuclear and radioactive materials that are outside regulatory control.

SOUNDBITE (English) Khammar Mrabit, Director of the IAEA’s Office of Nuclear Security:
“Information reported to this database demostrate that the availability of unsecured nuclear and other radioactive material persists, that the effective border control measures helped to detect illicit trafficking, and that individuals and groups are prepared to engage in trafficking this material.“

The theme of this year’s conference is Enhancing Global Efforts.

SOUNDBITE (English) Khammar Mrabit, Director of the IAEA’s Office of Nuclear Security:
“As the Conference title says, this is about enhancing global efforts and states have the responsibility for their nuclear security, but, international actions can support and compliment national efforts to make global nuclear security stronger and stronger.“

The IAEA helps States to protect their nuclear facilities against terrorist attacks or acts of sabotage, to prevent nuclear and other radioactive materials from being stolen and used maliciously, to secure borders against smuggling of radioactive materials, and to prepare for major public events that could be a target for criminal groups.
