SEOUL, March 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The construction of an international nuclear security academy (INSA) was launched in the South Korean city of Daejeon on Wednesday, Yonhap reported. This event is timed to a Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul on March 26-27. The leaders of 53 countries, including Russia, the United States and China will participate in the summit.
South Korean President Lee Myung-bak made a pledge to build this academy at the inaugural Nuclear Security Summit in Washington in 2010, when the summiteers stated about their plans to hold a second international nuclear forum in Seoul.
The construction of the International Nuclear Security Academy is scheduled to complete in 2013 and already in the next year the academy will enrol its first students, who will be educated in security at nuclear power plants and prevention of nuclear terrorism, a source in the South Korean government said.
“The main goal of the academy, where experts in nuclear security will be educated is to protect the lives and prosperity of people from nuclear terrorism and attain global peace,” South Korean Prime Minister Kim Hwang-sik said at the groundbreaking ceremony of the academy.
