Western leaders demand “military containment” at Zaporizhzhya factory


Biden, Johnson, Macron and Scholz back next IAEA visit to “ensure safety” at factory

The situation around the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant is worrying Western leaders because of a nuclear risk “ten times” higher than the Chernobyl disaster, as Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba warned a week ago. United States President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and France’s Emmanuel Macron and Germany’s Olaf Scholz leaders held simultaneous talks this Sunday demanding “military containment” at the plant. .

“Military operations in the vicinity of the plant should be avoided,” the White House said in a statement, before insisting on “the importance of an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) visit as soon as possible to assess the state of the factory to determine.” of security systems. In that sense, the four leaders have welcomed talks for the earliest possible arrival of a UN nuclear agency mission to the Zaporizhzhya plant, where they want to “ensure safety”. The date of the IAEA visit has yet to be determined. On Friday, Russia agreed to allow experts to inspect the facilities.

Western leaders have taken the opportunity to reiterate their commitment to Ukraine in an invasion three days away from six months. On the other hand, they have also talked about “other shared priorities” such as Iran’s nuclear program.
