Kyrgyzstan lacks radioactive substances specialists

Kyrgyzstan does not have enough experts to fully implement the UN Security Council Resolution on the Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction. The State Secretary of the Ministry of Economy Aydin Sharsheev informed 24.kg news agency.

According to him, Kyrgyzstan in 2004 was one of the first in Central Asia to join the resolution, and in 2013 the country adopted a national action plan for its implementation. It is updated every three years.

«In 2017, the second national plan was adopted. We are strengthening control at the border and customs to prevent the export and import of the so-called dual-use goods, which include, for example, radioactive substances for military use. But unfortunately, Kyrgyzstan is experiencing staff shortages. We do not have enough specialists to improve the control system. Trained people should check, sort the products,» said Aydin Sharsheev.

He stressed that we had to adopt the experience of Tajikistan, which annually trains over 500 specialists.

In general, Kyrgyzstan is the leader among the countries of Central Asia in implementing the UN Security Council Resolution on the Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction.
