In her welcoming speech Dalia Grybauskaite emphasized that in developing projects countries must first of all think about the consequences, including for the neighbours". The Chernobyl and Fukushima accidents have taught us that the safety of nuclear power is the essential issue for the entire international community. Therefore a shared responsibility and the urgent goal is to ensure that the production of nuclear energy in every corner of the world were in line with the highest international safety standards" - said the President of Lithuania. She noted that Lithuania not only encourages the IAEA to regularly promote the principles of safe operation of nuclear power plants, but also to conduct regular assessments of nuclear power plants in operation or under construction.
