CZECH REPUBLIC-IAEA.

The European Commission sent a reasoned opinion to the Czech Republic on 31 January for its failure to accede to the 1977 agreement between Euratom, its non-nuclear weapon member states and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (78/164/Euratom). The treaty provides for the conclusion of safeguard agreements between the IAEA and non-nuclear weapons states for the purpose of checking that their obligations assumed under the treaty are fulfilled, in particular to prevent the diversion of nuclear energy for peaceful uses to nuclear weapons. In accordance with its Act of Accession, the Czech Republic is obliged to accede to the trilateral agreement and to apply all its provisions, instead of its bilateral agreement with the IAEA, which should be suspended.
