The prime minister made the remarks during a meeting with Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), at the Peace Palace in the capital Phnom Penh.

He asked the IAEA to assist the Ministry of Mines and Energy to develop human resources and to draft laws relevant to nuclear technologies.

Yukiya said his visit to Cambodia was to discover what kinds of nuclear technology applications Cambodia needs and said the agency was ready to help the country upon requests.

IAEA is the world’s center of cooperation in the nuclear field. Established as the world’s “Atoms for Peace” organization in 1957 by the United Nations, the agency works with worldwide member states and partners to promote safe and peaceful nuclear technologies.

Its mandate is to accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to peace, health, and prosperity throughout the world.
