Shanghai: China has urged the International Atomic Energy Agency to do more to strengthen nuclear safety and to use lessons taken from Japan`s crisis to improve the handling of emergencies.
Wang Min, a Chinese delegate to the United Nations, said on Tuesday at a UN session on the IAEA`s annual report that the body should work to restore confidence in atomic energy shaken by the meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant caused by the March earthquake and tsunami.
He said the IAEA should increase technical help for developing countries to help them improve their nuclear infrastructure and ensure safe development of nuclear energy.
