Cornel Feruţă elected as IAEA Acting Director General
25 July 2019 18:39

Extraordinary meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors took place in Vienna on 25 July

During the meeting, Member States payed tribute and observed a minute of silence in memory of late Director General Yukiya Amano, reported to pass away on Monday, 22 July.

Designation of Cornel Feruţă, Mr Amano’s Head of the Office, became the main result of the Board’s meeting.

However, the last decision on the procedure for the nominations for the appointment of the Director General are still to be made during the next week’s additional extraordinary Board’s meeting.

 

The statement by the representative of Ukraine at the July 25th Board of Governors meeting is below:

Thank you, Madame Chair.

The delegation of Ukraine aligns itself with the statement delivered by the delegation of Finland on behalf of the EU.

In my national capacity, I would like to deliver a message by Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine HE Mr Pavlo Klimkin.

I quote:

“On behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine I convey my deepest condolences to the IAEA Secretariat on the passing away of Director General Yukiya Amano.

H.E. Mr. Yukiya Amano was a visionary leader and an outstanding diplomat. His wisdom and unwavering commitment to multilateralism contributed to maintenance of stability in modern nuclear order.

Even in the most challenging times of his tenure, H.E. Mr. Yukiya Amano managed to find a right balance among Member States in promoting peaceful uses of nuclear energy, thus contributing to the international community’s efforts to reach global Sustainable Development Goals.

We commend in particular his firm and principled position regarding the Agency’s safeguards implementation in Ukraine, ensuring compliance of the IAEA platform with the relevant UN GA resolutions on Crimea.”

End of quote.

We believe that the memory of H.E. Mr. Yukiya Amano will forever remain in our hearts as well as his prominent job will further be effectively implemented, especially within a number of the IAEA activities around the world.”

Thank you, Madame Chair.
