LONDON, December 7. /TASS/. The International Luxembourg Forum on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe will convene a major conference on nuclear security in 2017, the key international organizations working in the sphere of nuclear security will be invited, president of the forum Vyacheslav Kantor said at a meeting of the supervisory board.
"The new US administration’s policy on global security is unclear yet, while some new trends in relations between the two nuclear superpowers have emerged as there has been no progress settling the crises in Syria and Ukraine which may influence the Russian-US relations, so we plan to convene a major conference and invite all the renowned international organizations working in the field of nuclear security," Kantor said.
According to him, specific recommendations to be drawn up at the conference will be forwarded to the leading countries, the UN Security Council and other bodies. The Luxembourg Forum has already convened two round-tables so that the most pressing issues related to the nuclear security could be discussed, Kantor added.
"We place great importance on the planned conference, particularly because 2017 will mark the tenth anniversary of the Luxembourg Forum," Kantor stressed. However, in his words, the forum's initiative was not enough. "It would be reasonable if globally renowned figures supported the idea," he noted saying that this matter could be discussed at the forum meetings.
The International Luxembourg Forum on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe was established in 2007 based on a decision made at the International Conference on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe. The forum comprises 49 credible and globally renowned experts from 14 countries.
