WASHINGTON, March 24 (Itar-Tass) — Russia calls on countries that have not joined the conventions on physical protection of nuclear materials and on fighting acts of nuclear terrorism to ratify these documents at the earliest, says the article “Seoul summit – view from Moscow” by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, published in The Washington Times newspaper.

The article, printed on the eve of the nuclear security summit to be held in Seoul on March 25-27, says that Russia signed and ratified the convention on physical protection of nuclear materials and an amendment to it as well as the Russian-brokered convention on fighting acts of nuclear terrorism, adopted by the international community.

The article notes that Russia calls on other states that have not done this, to speed up domestic procedures on joining these important international instruments.

The minister notes that Russia and the US are now the most advanced states in using nuclear energy.
