US, UK, Russia hold nuclear security workshop

Vienna

Representatives from U.S., U.K. and the Russian Federation convened a two-day workshop on how to best secure loose nuclear materials worldwide.

The Seventh Annual Nuclear Security Best Practices Exchange on Feb. 22 in Vienna, Austria brought together officials from the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence and Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation (Rosatom).

These workshops grew out of commitments in a 2005 U.S.-Russian Joint Statement on Nuclear Security, said NNSA and the U.K. joined as a participant in in 2008. The exchanges are designed to bring together technical experts with high-level policy makers to improve understanding of challenges related to securing nuclear material, said NNSA. Each country made presentations on best practices for securing nuclear material, followed by discussions that helped further develop solutions to prevent the theft or seizure of nuclear material, it said.

“Our nations have a strong mutual commitment to developing and sharing the world’s best practices in nuclear security, as our long-term cooperation demonstrates,” said Anne Harrington, NNSA Deputy Administrator for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation. “These workshops are a unique opportunity for U.S., Russian and U.K. partners to work collaboratively, and are an important part of a global effort to improve the security of nuclear materials around the world.”

The trilateral workshop was led by the NNSA acting chief of the Office of Defense Nuclear Security, the Rosatom deputy director general for Security and the principal security adviser of the Defence Equipment and Support Organisation, U.K. Ministry of Defence.

The exchanges, said NNSA, are sponsored by its Material Protection, Control and Accounting (MPC&A) program, which partners with Russia and other countries to strengthen the security of nuclear weapons and weapons-usable nuclear material worldwide.
