“In addition to obvious public health consequences, the epidemic of the novel coronavirus in Iran could affect the implementation of the IAEA safeguards agreements. In his article for the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, Professor George M. Moore of the Middlebury Institute for International Studies at Monterey warns: Iranian authorities may restrict the access of IAEA inspectors to the country under the pretext of combating the spread of infection. Although the IAEA assures that the inspections at nuclear facilities in Iran are carried out in full, the risks, according to Moore, are extremely high. In the absence of convincing information from the sites themselves, the international community (primarily Israel and the United States) will proceed from the most pessimistic scenarios for the development of the Iranian nuclear program” - this is the leitmotiv of the 521st issue of Yaderny Control bulletin.

PIR Center's Particpation in the 2010 NPT Review Conference

On May 3-28, 2010 the Eighth NPT Review Conference is taking place in New York. Having entered into force forty years ago, the NPT has become a cornerstone of the international nuclear nonproliferation regime. The NPT serves as a basis for the promotion of the nuclear disarmament process and is a framework for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

International security largely depends on the success of the NPT Review Conference.

PIR Center president Vladimir Orlov is an adviser to the Russian delegation and takes an active part in the work of the Conference. “Ways of Nuclear Disarmament” Project Coordinator Elena Geleskul represents PIR Center.
