Commenting on the statement of the IAEA director general that such weapons are rapidly spreading in the world, Alexander Yakovenko said: "There are in the world quite many, also ownerless, sources of fuel. This is why we have submitted to the United Nations Security Council a draft resolution on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The initiative targets the strengthening of international cooperation in the struggle against the illegal turnover of weapons of mass destruction".

"In order to prevent the threat of dangerous nuclear materials, Russia together with the United States and the International Atomic Energy Agency is already working on the programme of replacing nuclear fuel from reactors in Serbia, Rumania, Bulgaria and Libya", recalled of the official spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry.

"Work is already under way but interaction of the international community should be stepped up so as to prevent weapons of mass destruction from getting into the wrong hands", Alexander Yakovenko said in conclusion.
