Brussels, November 28 - Neftegaz.RU. The 3rd EU-Iran High-level Seminar on International Nuclear Cooperation: Achievements and Prospects was held on 26-27 November.
The seminar was opened by Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, Miguel Arias Cañete and by Ali Akbar Salehi, Vice-President of Iran and Head of the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI). Other participants included Members of the Iranian Parliament, representatives of the AEOI, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran, the International Atomic Energy Agency, observers from E3+2 countries, scientists and engineers.
Arias Cañete said that the EU remained committed to the continued full and effective implementation of the nuclear deal in all its aspects as long as Iran continues to implement its nuclear-related commitments in full, as confirmed by 13 consecutive International Atomic Energy Agency reports. Preserving the JCPOA is a matter of respecting international agreements and a matter of international security.
Both parties recalled examples of EU-Iran cooperation in the civil nuclear field including: frequent high-level exchanges on policy matters pertaining to civil nuclear cooperation; a joint workshop on civil nuclear liability and insurance; projects that support the efforts of Iran's Nuclear Regulatory Authority to align with international standards in the legislative and regulatory field; scientific seminars and technical visits to nuclear sites and laboratories of the EU Joint Research Centre; projects in support of the modernisation of the Arak research reactor (Khondab), and the conversion of the Fordow facility into a nuclear, physics, and technology centre.
The seminar reconfirmed the existing understanding that international nuclear co‑operation and nuclear governance are important elements which should be developed in parallel in order to optimise benefits for all sides.
