SEOUL, March 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia, Kazakhstan and the United States are nearing the completion of the work to eliminate the consequences of the use of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site and urge other countries to follow their example of the joint work on nuclear security.
The Russian, Kazakh and U.S. presidents participating in the summit on nuclear security made a joint statement on Tuesday on the tripartite cooperation.
A great volume of work has been done by the present. As a result of the use of modern physical and technical means, the average level of safety in the former test area has been raised considerably, the document said. The work is nearing the completion, the leaders noted.
The work is viewed as a rather successful example of tripartite cooperation, proving the common commitment to physical nuclear security and non-proliferation, the presidents stated.
Since 2004, the three countries have been cooperating to carry out projects to eliminate the consequences of the nuclear tests in the former Semipalatinsk test site to make it safe. The Kazakh, Russian and U.S. presidents are committed to the fight against threats of nuclear proliferation and nuclear terrorism. So, they have personally controlled the realization of the goals (rehabilitation of the former test area), the statement said.
