SEOUL, March 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia is concerned over the global threat of nuclear terrorism and the fact that the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism has not become a truly universal legal instrument, says a Russian memorandum posted at the Seoul Nuclear Security Summit.
“Russia expresses its concern over the remaining global threat of nuclear terrorism, the possibility of trafficking in nuclear material and radioactive substance and the low efficiency of export control. We are concerned over the fact that the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material, amendments to it and the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism have not become truly universal legal instruments,” the memorandum runs.
“Russia attributes great significance to the coordination of international efforts towards lowering the risk of nuclear terrorism. The global initiative for the suppression of acts of nuclear terrorism is an efficient tool of the deterrence of this threat and the strengthening of physical nuclear security worldwide,” the memorandum says.
“Russia supports the IAEA elaboration of methods for verifying the declared cargo in transborder movement of nuclear and other radioactive material,” it says.
“Russia is one of the 15 countries, which have been using this technique for 15 years, and it is ready to assist third countries to learn it. The equipment of border posts with such controlling instruments is almost complete, and a national automated information system is being introduced to monitor transborder shipment of nuclear material,” it says.
The memorandum also noted that Moscow was working out a pilot system for the prevention of trafficking in radioactive material in the Murmansk region.
