MOSCOW, JANUARY 16, 2015. PIR PRESS – “Exporters act on their initiative and help importing countries with a number of infrastructural issues, primarily in the educational sphere. Not only the supplier companies but also the exporting countries themselves work on education, development of the legal base and norms. Japan, Russia, France, South Korea and the USA are doing a great job, especially in the cases where they are involved in the construction. There is a number of good examples of assistance in education and training of national specialists, sometimes it seems to be done for purely humanitarian reasons,” – IAEA Deputy Director General, Alexander Bychkov.

On January 15, 2015, subscribers received the information-analytical bulletin of PIR Center Yaderny Kontrol #1 (460), January 2015.

The issue is mainly devoted to the beginning of another year cycle of international talks and conferences on nuclear nonproliferation, disarmament and peaceful uses of nuclear energy. The next round of talks on Iranian nuclear issue starting on January 18 and the opening of the first session of the Conference on Disarmament on January 19 will kick start the new year.

An associate in the Carnegie Moscow Center’s Nonproliferation Program, Petr Topychkanov explained why the Pakistani position leaves little possibilities for a breakthrough at the Conference for Disarmament (in Russian). 

The latest issue of the bulletin also highlighted the importance of development of the nuclear infrastructure in the nuclear newcomers.

In his interview, IAEA Deputy Director General, Alexander Bychkov summed up Agency’s experience on the topic (in Russian).

Alexander Bychkov highly evaluated the contribution of the exporting countries in the long and complicated process of infrastructural development: “Exporters act on their initiative and help importing countries with a number of infrastructural issues, primarily in the educational sphere. Not only the supplier companies but also the exporting countries themselves work on education, development of the legal base and norms. Japan, Russia, France, South Korea and the USA are doing a great job, especially in the cases where they are involved in the construction. There is a number of good examples of assistance in education and training of national specialists, sometimes it seems to be done for purely humanitarian reasons.”

The issue also covers international efforts and Russian estimates of fighting the nuclear technology black market (in Russian), warming forecasts for Iranian political arena (in Russian), assessment of the new Russian military doctrine (in Russian) and much more.
