Kuwait’s Ministry of Interior always strives to cooperate with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to promote awareness in nuclear security safety to limit smuggling of nuclear materials that could be used in terrorist operations, the Ministry's Assistant Undersecretary Major General Jamal Hatim Al-Sayigh announced, Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

This remark was made earlier this week at the opening ceremony of a meeting on the exchange of information of nuclear and radioactive material. The meeting was co-hosted by Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR). It was attended by representatives from the GCC Ministries of Interior.

Al-Sayigh pointed out the three-day meeting aims at promoting international cooperation and the exchange of information in the field of nuclear security and safety of radioactive waste management.

Executive Commissioner for International Cooperation and the National Liaison Officer with IAEA Dr. Nader Al-Awadhi said that the meeting was held in Kuwait because safety is a top priority for the Gulf country where it strives to enhance human and scientific resources in this field.

Al-Awadi stressed the importance of having an international cooperation to limit nuclear and radioactive substance trafficking.
