DG IAEA briefed on Pak nuclear security


RAWALPINDI: Director General International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano on Wednesday visited Pakistan’s Centre of Excellence for Nuclear Security, where he was briefed on the training spectrum based on international best practices and standards on nuclear security, according to a press release issued by the ISPR. The DG IAEA in his remarks on the occasion said, “It is very impressive that you organise the training in a very systemic and operational manner.” It may be mentioned here that Pakistan has been operating its nuclear plants for almost five decades with commendable safety and security record. As a responsible nuclear state, Pakistan desires to contribute to the global cause of nuclear security. In pursuit of its vision, Centre of Excellence for Nuclear Security was established in 2012 to impart training in entire range of activities, directly or indirectly linked with the nuclear safety and security. During Nuclear Security Summit 2012 held in Seoul, the centre was offered as a training hub to the countries in the region and beyond. The visit of DG IAEA to the Pakistan’s Centre of Excellence for Nuclear Security is an international recognition of the high standards of training and culture of excellence in the field of nuclear security of Pakistan. Pakistan accords the highest priority to nuclear security for being its national responsibility in all forms and manifestation. Earlier on his arrival, he was received by Maj Gen Muhammad Tahir, Director General Security, SPD.
