China Clarifies Its Stand to Continue Nuclear Development
Beijing, June 8 (KCNA) -- China asserts its sustainable nuclear development on the premise of its safety, the director of the State Atomic Energy Agency of China, said at a meeting of the Board of Governors of the IAEA held in Vienna, Austria on June 6.

It is an important element of China's strategy for energy development to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and increase the proportion of clean energy, he said, adding that the Chinese government attaches great importance to nuclear safety and observes safety-first principle and established perfect nuclear safety regulations and systems for supervising nuclear safety and taking emergency measures.

Nuclear energy still remains an important option due to the shortage of energy and climate change worldwide but its development should be premised on safety, he stressed.
