First Iran-EU Nuclear Safety Project Launched

Iran and the European Union launched their first joint project aimed at strengthening bilateral nuclear safety cooperation. At a Wednesday meeting in Tehran, the EU delegation, headed by Olivier Luyckx, the director of EU nuclear safety unit, and the Iranian side led by Hojjatollah Salehi, the director of Iran’s nuclear safety center, officially announced the start of the €2.5-million project, Press TV reported. The project was signed in April within the framework of the 2015 nuclear deal. It is part of a €5-million package approved in 2016 with regard to Iran-EU cooperation on nuclear safety. Under the agreement, Tehran-EU nuclear safety cooperation will last for three and a half years. One of its key objectives is to enhance Iran’s nuclear safety capabilities in various spheres, including the establishment of a nuclear safety center as foreseen in the nuclear deal. Under the project, the EU will support the Iranian Nuclear Regulatory Authority in developing a nuclear regulatory framework, working toward the accession by Iran to several international nuclear conventions. The project also seeks to provide more training opportunities to Iranian experts on nuclear safety procedures.
