THE UNITED NATIONS, November 4. /TASS/. Russia “has taken full responsibility” for nuclear sites in the country’s Republic of Crimea and its Crimean federal city of Sevastopol and is ready to permit the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to hold inspections at them, Russian Deputy Permanent Representative in the UN Alexander Pankin said at a meeting of the global organisation’s General Assembly devoted to IAEA activity on Monday.
“Russia has taken full responsibility for nuclear sites in the country’s new territorial entities. Meanwhile, Russia said the country is ready to give an opportunity to the agency, if it is interested in this, to hold a full-format inspection that original and special material used at these nuclear facilities is not taken from them, except for the cases stipulated under the February 21, 1985 agreement between the Soviet Union and the IAEA,” the diplomat said.
