Poland has been selected for the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced.
In its statement, Poland’s MFA wrote that during the IAEA's annual General Conference in Vienna, the agency's member states elected Poland to the Board of Governors for the 2020-2022 term.
The ministry said membership within the group enabled "a strengthening of Polish engagement on the international forum in nuclear non-proliferation policy and peaceful use of atomic energy," adding that "Poland is an active member of all existing regimes, organisations and initiatives acting in the field of nuclear non-proliferation" and that this is reflected in the country's important role in the review of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
