200 participants from 50 countries will take part in the international conference ‘Building a Nuclear Weapons Free World’, which will be held August 29 in Astana. Delegation from the United States is expected to attend the event as well. President of a leading company in the field of transport logistics of radioactive materials Jack Edlow considers their participation in the international forum, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site closure, a great honor.

 

Jack EDLOW, PRESIDENT, EDLOW INTERNATIONAL COMPANY:

 

This was a very important action on the part of the newly independent Kazakhstan. After the end of the Soviet Union they were left with, you know a large quantity of radioactive materials and many, many weapons. It was a very, very important step that they took, it was a new country to decide, they didn’t need them in fact, and they were problem for them. So this was quite a major important step for this country and frankly speaking I think perhaps they deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.
