Poland elected to the IAEA Board of Governors
During an annual session of the General Conference in Vienna, representatives of the International Atomic Energy Agency Member States elected Poland to the Board of Governors for 2020-2022.
Membership in this body will enable Poland to strengthen international commitment to non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and peaceful use of atomic energy. Poland participates actively in all existing nuclear non-proliferation regimes, organizations and initiatives. It is reflected in Polish engagement in the current review cycle of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
The International Atomic Energy Agency is an autonomous international organization within the United Nations system, established in 1957 to coordinate all activities related to the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology. Through its safeguards and verification system, the IAEA plays a unique role in the international nuclear non-proliferation regime.
