“If suddenly Iran is out of enriched uranium and it isn’t able to provide us with it, we will be able to address to IAEA. It is like to borrow money in an ordinary bank: one cannot rely only on personal income and has to go to a bank from time to time. It’s a certain airbag, which would secure us if the fuel cycle or other things go wrong, for example, due to political reasons. The Middle East is a very turbulent place: today we’re friends, tomorrow there could be another situation,” - Mohammed Shaker, Chairman of Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs.

The new issue of Security Index journal offers several predictions for the development of international security. First of all, during the round table "Russia, challenges to its security and answers: expectations for 2014 and reality–2015" Dmitry Trenin, Dmitry Evstafiev, Armen Oganesyan, Vadim Kozyulin and Andrei Suzdaltsev, someone a year ago, someone a little more – have given us their predictions about what threats and challenges Russia will face and how she will react to them. And now in the spring of 2015, they don't just look at their own predictions of that absolutely unpredictable year, but also offer their views in 2015.
“I am glad to greet you on the occasion of the opening of the Conference. The agenda of the meeting includes a range of issues related to the implementation of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, which has been a cornerstone of the international security system for more than four decades, ensuring strategic parity and global stability. […] I hope that all the NPT States Parties will reiterate at the Conference their readiness to strictly fulfill their commitments under the Treaty.

Development of Russia’s Nuclear Exports
This project is completed. Information is not being updated
"We believe that PIR Center’s project dedicated to the Russian nuclear export will allow Russian companies to conduct a more balanced policy on nuclear cooperation and will contribute significantly to the strengthening of strategic dialogue between Russia and other countries".
PIR Center President Dr. Vladimir A. Orlov
Nuclear technologies, including assistance in designing and building nuclear reactors are one of the key Russian high-tech exports. Russian nuclear exports comply with all the requirements regarding the security of nuclear materials and nuclear nonproliferation.
This project is a PIR Center’s initiative to conduct a comprehensive study of the current state and the future of Russia's nuclear energy cooperation with other countries. The initiative also aims to analyze the Russian nuclear industry's export potential during the ongoing era of nuclear renaissance, as the looming shortage of fossil fuels is forcing many countries to think seriously about pursuing nuclear energy.
