An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), sponsored International Conference on the decommissioning of nuclear facilities and the “safe termination” of nuclear activities began here on Monday, bringing together some 350 top scientists from around the world.

The IAEA is represented by Deputy Director General and the Head of its Department of Nuclear Safety and Security, Tomihiro Taniguchi.

On his part, the President of Greece’s Atomic Energy Agency, Prof. Leonidas Camarinopoulos, said the east Mediterranean country’s keen interest in the sector remains focused on a handful of nuclear facilities in neighbouring countries due for closure, in tandem with increased interest in building nuclear power plants in the region.
