The UN General Assembly is considering a draft resolution on nuclear safety prepared by Ukraine, which dozens of other countries are ready to support. This is done in continuation of the nuclear safety clause in the "peace formula".

This was announced by the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Serhii Kyslytsya on X.

On 11 July, the UN General Assembly will consider the draft resolution "Safety and Security of Nuclear Facilities of Ukraine, including Zaporizhzhya NPP", which is submitted by Ukraine together with dozens of partner countries that are ready to support it. 

Serhii Kyslytsia reminded that the issue of nuclear safety was one of the key issues discussed at the first Peace Summit in Switzerland last month. 

"The draft resolution of the General Assembly recalls that the Summit stressed that any use of nuclear energy and nuclear facilities must be safe, secure, reliably protected and not harmful to the environment and that Ukrainian nuclear power plants and facilities, in particular ZNPP, must remain under the full sovereign control of Ukraine in accordance with the IAEA principles. We are grateful to the countries that supported the project and became its co-sponsors even before the vote," he said. 

Currently, the following countries are going to support the project: Albania, Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belize, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Canada, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Italy, Latvia, Liberia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Micronesia (Federated States of), the Netherlands, Monaco, Montenegro, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Norway, Palau, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Moldova, Romania, San Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tonga, United Kingdom, United States of America, Vanuatu.

The meeting will begin at approximately 21:30 CET. 

Earlier, after the summit, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the discussion on the three issues that were identified for discussion at the time - nuclear security, food security, and the return of captured and deported children - could result in "absolutely practical steps".
