“In addition to obvious public health consequences, the epidemic of the novel coronavirus in Iran could affect the implementation of the IAEA safeguards agreements. In his article for the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, Professor George M. Moore of the Middlebury Institute for International Studies at Monterey warns: Iranian authorities may restrict the access of IAEA inspectors to the country under the pretext of combating the spread of infection. Although the IAEA assures that the inspections at nuclear facilities in Iran are carried out in full, the risks, according to Moore, are extremely high. In the absence of convincing information from the sites themselves, the international community (primarily Israel and the United States) will proceed from the most pessimistic scenarios for the development of the Iranian nuclear program” - this is the leitmotiv of the 521st issue of Yaderny Control bulletin.

Comments on Trialogue Club International activities

 

Bas WELS, First Secretary at the Embassy of the Netherlands:

"For us it is very interesting, because generally you have very good speakers, high political level, high civil servants, and it gives a very good background insights and in Russian policy, so that’s really good. I will appreciate if we continue with our membership."

 


Victor MUROGOV, Professor of the State Technical University for Nuclear Power, a member of the Club since 2012:

"Dear Vladimir Andreyevich, please accept my congratulations on the successful activities of the Trialogue Club and on successful publication in the Security Index journal. I hope to extend my membership for the next year".


 

Vyacheslav NIKONOV, Chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on Education:

 "It gives me a great pleasure to speak to such a distinguished audience of professionals, to share my views on foreign policy with you".




Alexander RADCHUK, Counsellor to the Chief of Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, a member of the Club since 2012:

"Interesting topics, interesting people, interesting views. Trialogue Club always meets these requirements. You can hear a competent opinion of authoritative people, ask a question which would not be answered in different environment. Politics, economy, national security and many other problems of the world are reflected in the agenda of the Club meetings. I recently became a member, but I was lucky to attend enough meetings to be able to meet old friends, make new and look at the number of acute problems in a different way. It is good that there is such platform, that the Club meetings forced its members to use their brains. Non-standard approaches and a fresh perspective, professionalism and credibility of the speakers - these are the distinguishing features of the Trialogue Club that allow you to talk about its long and fruitful work. I wish the Club success and new heights!"


Sergey RYABKOV, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia:

"PIR Center is one of the organizations that provides high level of political research on the key issues of international security agenda, and in this sense, provides support to our official foreign policy elite, and independent experts, at the appropriate level. I very appreciate your work, including, in form of the Russia Confidential analytical newsletter (we call it as the PIR Yellow Papers). They are very stimulating to intellectual pursuit, going in many cases ahead, a few steps further than official diplomacy allows".


Mohamed SHAKER, Chairman of the Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs:

"Trialogue Club meeting of October 4 was interesting. It gave me an opportunity - and gave the same opportunity to the Iranian representative - to announce several important theses. I think the meeting was very well organized".
