Improving the legal system on nuclear safety and security is of national
importance, the Ministry of Science and Technology has emphasised.

The country has expanded international cooperation with the
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), as well as Japan, Russia,
the US and Hungary in atomic energy, nuclear safety and security.

In September 2012, Vietnam’s President
approved the supplementary protocol of the Treaty on the
Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and necessary documents to
join IAEA’s Convention on Physical Protection of Nuclear Material.

The ministry has coordinated with relevant ministries and sectors as
well as its partners from Russia, Japan, France and the US to
speed up human resource training in the field in service of the
country’s future nuclear power plants, and the construction of the
Vietnam-Russia Nuclear Science and Technology Centre.

In the coming time, the ministry will intensify communication
campaigns to enhance public awareness of nuclear power used for peaceful
purposes, as well as the application of atomic energy for national
socio-economic development.-VNA
