Cuba achieved positive results after a Nuclear Safeguards inspection, carried out by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), based in Vienna.
The aim of the inspection was to verify the fulfillment of the country's commitments regarding nuclear non-proliferation, based on the control of the stock of its declared nuclear materials.
The Cuban Nuclear Communicators Network (RECNUC by its Spanish acronym) also stated that, as on previous times, the results of the investigation showed that the nation was in full compliance with the requirements of the corresponding safeguards agreement.
The Caribbean country handles and stores nuclear materials in totally peaceful applications of nuclear energy, RECNUC added, referring to the Office of Environmental Regulation and Security of the Nuclear Security Directorate.
Cuba has been a State Party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean (Treaty of Tlatelolco) since 2002.
The main objective of the IAEA safeguards system is to offer credible assurances to the international community that nuclear materials from peaceful uses are not deflected to nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices.
