IAEA to hold nuclear safety summit end of June
Vienna: UN atomic watchdog chief Yukiya
Amano said on Wednesday that a ministerial-level summit would be held
from June 20-24 to try to examine the lessons learned from the
ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan.
"I have sent out letters to all prime ministers of IAEA
member states inviting them to a ministerial conference on
nuclear safety," the director general of the International
Atomic Energy Agency told a regular news briefing here.
"This will be held in Vienna from June 20-24," he said.
The meeting would offer a "preliminary assessment" of the
nuclear accident at Japan`s quake-stricken Fukushima nuclear
power plant and a "preliminary review of safety standards in
light of this accident," Amano said.
Japan would "certainly attend", but he did not yet have
confirmation from the Japanese side exactly who would attend
from the government in Tokyo, he added.
