Dhaka has urged the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for continuous support for its first-ever nuclear power plant.
The call was made when Bangladesh Ambassador to Austria Md Abu Zafar led Bangladesh delegation to the second special session of the General Conference of the IAEA, says a press release.
The special session formally endorsed the appointment of Ambassador Rafael Mariano Grossi, Ambassador of Argentina, as its sixth Director General (DG). His four-year tenure will commence on Tuesday (Dec 3).
While congratulating the new Director General, Zafar emphasized that under the leadership of Ambassador Grossi, IAEA is required to strengthen its support, through Technical Cooperation, to the needs of LDCs and the countries in transition for the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
