Hamad Ali Al Ka’abi, Permanent Representative of the UAE to the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, has expressed the UAE’s appreciation for the Agency’s efforts in assisting member states to benefit from the peaceful use of nuclear energy and the development of national nuclear energy.

He also lauded the efforts of Yukiya Amano, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the Secretariat General in carrying out its mandate and working towards achieving this goal.

While reading out the UAE’s statement at the 61st IAEA General Conference, Al Ka’abi highlighted the great progress achieved by the UAE since the start of the national programme of peaceful nuclear energy, noting that more than 82 per cent of the construction of the four reactors at the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant has been done, and more than 96 per cent of the construction work completed on the first unit.
