Nuclear safety worldwide is steadily improving but the risk of accidents or malicious acts can never be eliminated and there is no room for complacency, the head of the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog agency said today.

“Vigilance and continuous improvement are key, both at existing nuclear facilities and at new facilities being planned in a growing number of countries, Mohamed ElBaradei, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (<““>IAEA) said as he opened the Board of Governor’s meeting of the organization today in Vienna.

Introducing IAEA’s Nuclear Safety Review for the Year 2008, he added “The drive to introduce, or expand the use of, nuclear power always needs to be matched by a strong commitment to safety and security as indispensable enablers of nuclear technology.”
