On April 19, 2012 PIRCenter in collaboration with the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) held an International seminar on Lessons and Prospects of Multilateral Cooperation on Nuclear Security and Nonproliferation.

The seminar was organized to discuss the problems of nuclear security and nonproliferation, international mechanisms of multilateral cooperation such as summits on nuclear security, the development of nuclear technology, and the future of international scientific cooperation. It was held in the frame of PIRCenter's project Future of Global Partnership: multilateral and bilateral (U.S.-Russia) cooperation on nuclear security and nonproliferation. The seminar was attended by more than 60 participants from 17 countries.

As Director of International Cooperation Department, State Atomic Energy p7211_2.jpgCorporation Rosatom Mikhail Lysenko noted: “The majority of countries has positive approach towards nuclear energy. If immediately after the events in Japan yellow light went on this way, and some countries froze their nuclear programs, now green light comes back on the way of nuclear energy further development on a global scale”.

The discussion was mainly devoted to international cooperation in the fields of atomic energy and nuclear security. According to Ambassador-at-large Grigory Berdennikov: “The Russian Federation, as one of the most developed countries in the sphere of nuclear technology, attaches much significance to developing and maintaining a high level of physical nuclear security, not only at home but around the world.

Significant experience is gained, and Russia intends to share it with others”.
