He praised the valuable efforts made by the Nuclear Safety Administration to enhance safety in all areas, and restore confidence in the ability to operate nuclear plants and facilities on international safety foundations and standards, expressing the Kingdom’s appreciation of the efforts made to adopt the necessary updates to the requirements and standards of nuclear safety.

He said in a speech delivered at the IAEA Board of Governors session currently held in the capital Vienna: The Kingdom takes into account all developments and developments in the field of nuclear safety during the planning of the national nuclear program to introduce nuclear energy to produce electricity within the energy mix.

He added: In the context of these preparations, the Nuclear and Radiological Supervisory Authority was established as an independent entity, as it started its work and responsibilities in a high independence and professional in the regulatory aspects related to nuclear safety, and in relation to the implementation of the Kingdom’s international obligations in this field, and to ensure the application of all safety standards to protect human and the environment .

He drew the attention of the IAEA Board of Governors to Iran’s intention to build its second reactor at the Bushehr nuclear plant site without completing the safety and safety requirements of the current Bo Shahr reactor, and that the consequences of a nuclear accident or radioactive leakage in the current Bushehr reactor in Iran affect its national borders, and not only affects The neighboring countries, but rather the countries of the world, and on all human, environmental and economic levels.

Prince Abdullah said: From this standpoint, the Kingdom stresses the importance of giving this aspect more attention, and urged Iran to quickly join all agreements related to nuclear safety, and work to reassure the neighboring countries and the whole world about the safety of the reactor.
