한국정부가 핵확산방지를 위해 아제르바이잔에 방사능탐지장비를 설치하는 비용 30만달러를 미국정부에 기부했습니다.

 

2013/01/02 - [분류 전체보기] - 부산항 통관 컨테이너 28% 방사능여부 검사 - 미국,2014년 핵탐지장비 한국에 완전 이양

미국 국가핵안보국[NNSA]는 한국정부가 핵확산방지를 위해 아제르바이잔에 방사능탐지장비를 설치하는데 따른 미 국가핵안보국과의 제휴협정을 갱신하고 30만달러를 기부하기로 했다고 오늘[미국시간 2일] 발표했습니다.

 

국가핵안보국은 한국의 외교통상부가 이 기금을 제공하며 국무부는 이 기금으로 아제르바이잔 바쿠공항에 방사능탐지장비를 설치할 것이라고 설명했습니다.

 

앤 해링턴 국가핵안보국 핵확산저지담당 부국장은 '한국이 전세계에 걸쳐 핵확산을 막으려는 국가핵안보국을 지속적으로 지원하는 것은 핵안보 확보에 기여하겠다는 약속을 보여주는 것'이라고 말했습니다,

 

국가핵안보국은 방사능탐지장비를 아제르바이잔에 설치해 특정한 핵물질이나 방사능물질이 불법적으로 밀거래되는 것은 막게 된다고 덧붙였습니다

 

국가핵안보국에 대한 한국의 지원은 이번이 5번째로 한국은 지난 2008년부터 2010년까지 우크라이나에 핵탐지장비설치를 위해 30만달러씩을 두차례 지원했으며 2011년에도 카자흐스탄과 우크라이나 핵탐지장비설치를 위해 각각 30만달러, 모두 60만달러를 지원했었습니다.

 

국가핵안보국은 한국외에도 캐나다, 핀란드, 네덜란드, 뉴질랜드, 노르웨이, 영국등으로 부터 핵탐지장비설치비용을 기부받았다고 밝혔습니다.

 

지난 2000년 미 에너지부 산하에 창설된 국가핵안보국은 미 국토안보부등과 협조해 핵안보확보를 위해 전세계 주요 공항과 항만등에 핵탐지장비를 설치, 컨테이너 스캔을 통해 핵물질의 밀거래를 막는등 핵안보확보에 나서고 있습니다.

 

한국은 지난해 서울에서 핵안보정상회의를 개최하는등 핵확산금지를 위해 노력하고 있습니다.

Press Release

Republic of Korea Increases Support of NNSA Work to Combat Nuclear Smuggling
Jan 2, 2013


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and the Republic of Korea today announced that the Republic of Korea renewed its partnership to combat nuclear smuggling with a $300,000 contribution to support NNSA’s ongoing nonproliferation work in Azerbaijan. The funding, provided by the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and facilitated by the U.S. Department of State’s Nuclear Smuggling Outreach Initiative (NSOI), will be used for the installation of radiation detection equipment at the Baku Airport.

“The Republic of Korea’s continued and generous support of NNSA’s work to strengthen nuclear security worldwide shows the strength of our relationship and the global commitment to nuclear security,” said NNSA Deputy Administrator for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Anne Harrington. “Partnerships like this allow NNSA to make even more progress in the global effort to secure vulnerable nuclear material and impede the efforts of terrorists and proliferators to acquire dangerous radioactive materials.”

The radiation detection equipment will provide Azerbaijan with additional tools to detect, deter and interdict illicit trafficking in special nuclear and radioactive materials that could be used to construct an improvised nuclear device or a radiological dispersal device.

This is the Republic of Korea’s fifth contribution to NNSA under the G8 Global Partnership – an agreement facilitating cooperation between 25 countries, including Korea and the U.S., to address nonproliferation, disarmament, counterterrorism and nuclear safety issues through cooperative projects. In 2008 and 2010, the Republic of Korea made two contributions of $300,000 to support NNSA’s work in Ukraine. In 2011, the Republic of Korea contributed a total of $600,000 to support NNSA’s work in Kazakhstan and Ukraine. These contributions showcase the strong partnership between the U.S. and Korea, which hosted the Nuclear Security Summit in 2010 and 2012, respectively.

Financial and in-kind contributions from international partners help augment NNSA nuclear nonproliferation programs. In addition to the Republic of Korea, NNSA, working in collaboration with NSOI, has received support from Canada, Finland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom to pursue nonproliferation efforts around the world, including:

•More than $31 million to help shut down the last remaining weapons-grade plutonium production reactors in Russia.

•Nearly $32 million to reduce and protect vulnerable nuclear and radiological materials located at civilian nuclear sites worldwide.

•More than $11 million to strengthen NNSA’s Second Line of Defense.

NNSA’s Second Line of Defense (SLD) program works with foreign governments at border crossings, airports and seaports to install specialized radiation detection equipment and to train officials to detect smuggled nuclear and other radioactive materials. NNSA has installed radiation detection equipment at more than 450 sites and 44 megaports around the world.

Established by Congress in 2000, NNSA is a semi-autonomous agency within the U.S. Department of Energy responsible for enhancing national security through the military application of nuclear science. NNSA maintains and enhances the safety, security, reliability and performance of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile without nuclear testing; works to reduce global danger from weapons of mass destruction; provides the U.S. Navy with safe and effective nuclear propulsion; and responds to nuclear and radiological emergencies in the U.S. and abroad.
