“Ukraine has neither plans, nor intentions, nor real opportunities for acquiring a nuclear status in the long run,” Ukrinform news agency quotes Chaly as saying.
On November 16, 1994 Ukraine joined the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons signed on July 1, 1968 and so undertook a commitment to eliminate all stocks of nuclear weapons left behind the Soviet Union and then use nuclear energy exclusively for peaceful purposes.
Officials of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the US ambassador in Ukraine refused to comment on possible after-effects of Ukraine’s turning into a nuclear power.
