“This is the only way to ensure that we do not face a nuclear accident”
Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Rafael Grossi has called for a full halt of hostilities around the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant, urging for the creation of a nuclear safety and protection zone around the facility, which is the only way to prevent a nuclear disaster.
“I therefore urgently call for the immediate cessation of all shelling in the entire area. Only this will ensure the safety and security of operating staff and allow the durable restoration of power to Enerhodar and the power plant. This dramatic development demonstrates the absolute imperative to establish a nuclear safety and security protection zone now. This is the only way to ensure that we do not face a nuclear accident,” the IAEA chief said.
