Rosatom CEO, IAEA head agree to hold consultations on Zaporozhye NPP in early 2024

The sides discussed the work of the IAEA mission at the plant and the upcoming next rotation of the agency's experts, scheduled for December 5, 2023.
Alexey Likhachev, CEO of the Russian state nuclear power operator, and Rafael Grossi, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), have discussed ensuring the issue of the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) during a meeting in Dubai on the sidelines of the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), Rosatom said on its Telegram channel.
"In the center of attention were issues related to ensuring nuclear and physical nuclear safety of the ZNPP," the state corporation said.
According to it, the sides discussed the work of the IAEA mission at the plant and the upcoming next rotation of the agency's experts, scheduled for December 5, 2023. "There is an agreement to hold full-scale consultations in January-February 2024," Rosatom said.
Earlier, Grossi proposed five principles of security of the Zaporozhye NPP to the UN Security Council: not to allow attacks on the power plant or its territory, not to deploy heavy weapons and forces that could be used for an offensive there, not to endanger the power plantís own power supply, to ensure protection of all structures and systems that safe operation of the power plant depend on, and not to take any actions that would undermine these principles. Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya stated that Russia has already taken measures in accordance with Grossiís proposals.
