VIENNA, September 14. /TASS/. Russia’s Rosatom state nuclear energy corporation head Sergey Kiriyenko has called for refraining from attempts to politicize the work of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

"International relations are going through a hard time now. The reasons of that are well-known. However, international cooperation continues in the routine mode in the sphere of nuclear energy," Kiriyenko told the 59th session of IAEA General Conference. "It is very important that IAEA maintains the professional character of its activity. We are categorically against attempts to politicize the agency," he noted.

Talking about nuclear energy, Kiriyenko stressed that this is a strategic sphere with long lifecycles that defines ensuring security as its top priority. IAEA activity "should not depend on situational fluctuations of the political environment," he added.

IAEA is a leading international forum of the scientific and technical cooperation in the sphere of peaceful use of atomic energy. The agency was established in the framework of the United Nations Organization in 1957 as an independent organization. It represents an international body tasked with controlling atomic energy and facilitating its safe use.
