Germany / IAEA Ready To Disseminate Knowledge Gained From Phaseout, Says Grossi

The International Atomic Energy Agency is ready to provide its assistance and to help disseminate the knowledge gained by Germany as it winds down its nuclear power programme, the agency’s director-general Rafael Mariano Grossi said after meeting foreign minister Heiko Maas and other senior German officials in Berlin.

Mr Grossi praised Germany’s efforts and progress in decommissioning its nuclear power plants and managing the waste. He noted that last year, an IAEA team of experts carried out a review in Germany and concluded the country was continuing to manage its radioactive waste and spent fuel in a safe and responsible manner. The team also noted opportunities for improving the monitoring of the implementation of the national programme for radioactive waste and spent fuel management.

He said Germany is demonstrating continued strong support for the International Atomic Energy Agency even as the country is shutting down its nuclear power plants, the agency’s director-general Rafael Mariano Grossi said after meeting foreign minister Heiko Maas and other senior German officials in Berlin.
