Qatar took part in the third international symposium to discuss ways to strengthen international efforts to reduce highly enriched uranium in the civilian nuclear sector around the world.
The symposium was organised by the Norwegian government in Oslo, in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Qatar's Permanent Representative to the United Nations and international organisations in Vienna Sheikh Ali bin Jassim al-Thani represented the country in the international symposium.
The participants discussed ways to support the IAEA's efforts to reduce the use and trade of highly enriched uranium, while maintaining safe and secure standards during the conversion of highly enriched uranium reactors to lowly enriched uranium and filling gaps to prevent terrorists from obtaining nuclear materials.
On the sidelines of the international symposium, HE Sheikh Ali bin Jassim al-Thani held meetings with heads of delegations of the participating countries, where he expressed Qatar's keenness and continuous co-operation with the IAEA to promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy in the world.
