In April 2009, 61 states and seven international organisations with a total of 808 participants and observers convened in Beijing at an international ministerial conference, organised by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in co-sponsorship with the Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD/NEA), to deal with nuclear energy in the 21st century.1 In his concluding statement, the president of that conference stressed that "the conference recognizes the positive momentum towards nuclear power and the decisions by many developed and developing states to pursue the use of nuclear energy".2 According to the Director General of the IAEA, more than 60 countries declared their interest in launching nuclear power programmes.
