Australian Parliament supports uranium agreement with Ukraine

The Treaties Committee of the Federal Parliament of Australia has supported conclusion of the agreement between the governments of Ukraine and Australia on cooperation in the field of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

This is reported by an Ukrinform correspondent with reference to the Embassy of Ukraine in Australia.

The concern was expressed about the consequences of recent aggravation of the security situation in Ukraine and the risk that the control over nuclear materials may be lost. It was recommended to assess the risks and develop the plan of response.

In accordance with the Australian procedure for approving the intergovernmental agreements, the relevant committee will consider the agreement throughout 20 parliamentary sessions. The Government's response to the Committee's recommendations is expected in March 2017. Afterwards, the document will be submitted to the Parliament.
